Today we head to Limerick with 4 runners and Dundalk with 1 runner.
CARA’S WAY runs in the Book Online At Limerickraces.ie Maiden Hurdle. She didn’t disgrace herself when finishing 5th at Navan on Sunday and we’d be hopeful of seeing her finish in the placings today, Keith Donoghue rides.
EMPIRE BURLEQUE made a bad mistake at the first and jumped a bit slow throughout his last race. We’ve been schooling him plenty at home and we’re hoping he can put that run behind him today. He runs in the Adare Manor Opportunity Maiden Hurdle and Liam McKenna takes the ride claiming 4lb.
ASKARI was unlucky to just miss out on a win yesterday in Thurles. The blinkers certainly helped him and if that race hasn’t taken too much out of him we’d be hopeful that he could get his head in front today. He runs in the Mr Binman Christmas Festival (QR) Handicap Hurdle and Kevin Brogan rides claiming 7lb.
Our last runner at Limerick is ARION SKY in the Follow Limerick Races On Twitter Mares Ladies Pro-Am INH Flat Race. She ran a great race to finish 3rd behind stablemate Dona Katharina on her racecourse debut in Ayr earlier in the month and has come on plenty for that run. We’d be hopeful of another good performance from her today and should see her finish in the mix under the talented Lisa O’Neill.
PENSYLVANIA AVENUE heads to Dundalk to run in Div 1 of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden over 7f. The Zoffany colt made his debut on the track back in August at the Curragh and seemed very green still. We’ve given him plenty of time to mature and he’s working well at home. The step up in trip should benefit him and we’d like to see him finish in the mix under Declan McDonogh.
