What a fantastic day yesterday! Well done to Jack Kennedy on his 100th winner and his first Grade 1!
9 runners today between 2 meetings;
A TOI PHIL – Keith Donoghue, JETSTREAM JACK – Davy Russell and PRINCE OF SCARS – David Mullins all represent us in the Grade 1 Neville Hotels Chase making up 3 of the 10 runners. Another Grade 1 today would be something else!!
BILKO is next in the Handicap Hurdle, a nice horse with 4 decent runs under his belt we hope he continues to head in the right direction. Bryan Cooper rides.
BURREN LIFE takes on the bumper with Jamie Codd on board, he was 2nd on his debut at Punchestown and will only come on for the run.
MONBEG ROSE contests the Mares Beginners Chase, she’s a tough little mare who has run in some decent races, 2nd last time out at Thurles she looks up against it with 1 or 2 here today but she’s in fine form at home. Jack Kennedy rides.
The 5 year old son of Kayf Tara CREST is next in the Novice Chase, 2nd last time out we hope he can go one better today and we think he can manage it under Jack Kennedy.
HOLEINTHEWALL BAR makes the journey for the next, a Handicap Hurdle – the course and distance winner is in great form and we would love to give his owners, the Blended Syndicate another winner.
Lastly we have ISODON in the bumper with Luke McGuinness in the saddle, his only start was a Maiden Hurdle last time out which was a competitive race, Luke takes off a welcome 7lb.
