Busy day today with 1 runner at Aintree and 9 in Ballinrobe.
CLARCAM is our sole runner at Aintree today in the Topham Chase, he loves the track and heads across the water in excellent form. Davy Russell rides.
TURANGA LILY is up first in the Mares Maiden Hurdle, she has been running well but is yet to get her head in front. A horse who will improve for time, we look forward to another promising run today under Jack Kennedy.
ASKARI has been very disappointing since joining us and really needs to start showing some improvement which we hope he will with a bit of patience. Keith Donoghue rides. CREZIC contests the same race with Jack Kennedy in the saddle and has been showing some real improvement of late, this looks an ideal opportunity to open up his account over hurdles.
ICARIO is next in the Handicap Hurdle with Jack Kennedy on board. He won last time out at the 17th time of asking so we hope he could make that two in a row today!
Two in the next PETE SO HIGH – Jack Kennedy and WATER SPRITE – Keith Donoghue. Both are in great order and go with a nice chance.
HOLLOW TREE has been disappointing recently but with first time cheek-pieces fitted today we would hope to see some improvement under Jack Kennedy. Also in this we have RIGHTDOWMTHEMIDDLE, another who hasn’t been showing his best lately but a horse who has plenty of decent runs behind him. Mark Enright rides.
HAMMERSTEIN ran well on his debut at Thurles last month and has come on plenty at home since, we hope with a little experience behind him he will run well again here today. Lisa O’Neill rides.
