8 runners at Down Royal today;

OSCO MOSCO (pictured) is up first in the Allied Bakeries Mares Maiden Hurdle, the Bumper winner made a good start to her hurdling debut last time out at Tramore to finish second. Davy Russell rides.

BOYTONRATH is next in the Handicap Hurdle, another who finished 2nd at Tramore last time out, she’s in great order at home and we expect another good run today, she is also partnered by Davy Russell.

BLUE EMPYREAN contests the Tayto Group Maiden Hurdle under Keith Donohgue along with stable mate CREADAN GRAE and Davy Russell. Both are in good order.

DEDIGOUT heads to the sales on Wednesday but has one last run for us here today in the Kerry Foods Hurdle, he’s back after a break and we hope he can put his last run behind him. Davy Russell.

BOUDRY – Davy Russell and WESTINMARE – Jack Kennedy both represent us in the Hovis Handicap Hurdle, the former would likely have the best chance of the two but they are both in mighty form at home.

BEST OF DUBAI wraps up the day making her racecourse debut, the 5 year old daughter of Dubai Destination shapes up well at home and we hope for a nice introduction under Lisa O’Neill.
