After a busy week in Punchestown, we head to Down Royal with 8 runners.
BATTS ROCK runs in the Pepsi Max Oppertunity Maiden Hurdle over 2m. He has his chance here today after his last run in Fairyhouse. Kevin Brogan rides who claims 4 lb.
We have 2 in the Belfast Live Hurdle over 3m. COUNT SIMON has been in great form over the past couple of months. He won last day out in Perth just over a week ago. Paddy Vaughan is in the saddle who claims 5lb. RAVENHILL makes his return to the track today after having a lengthy break. He stormed in last day out in Sedgefield to win by 11L. Katie O’ Farrell takes the ride.
FARCLAS runs in the Daily Mirror Beginners Steeplechase over 2m 3f. It is a small but competitive field here today. He pulled up in Cheltenham but hopefully today will be a chance for him to redeem himself. Andrew Ring is in the saddle.
We have 2 in the Daily Mirror Handicap Steeplechase over 2m. VEINARD carries top weight but has the ability to run a good race. Brian Hayes is in the saddle. DAKOTA MOIRETTE pulled up last day out in Fairyhouse. Conor Brassil is on his back who claims 5lb.
GLOBAL SOCIETY ridden by Jamie Codd & FELINO DE BERISY ridden by Lisa O’Neill run in the Racing TV (Pro/AM) Flat Race. Both have their chances here today.
We just have the one runner heading to the Curragh today.
GLOVES LYNCH was a winner of his maiden in Carlisle, he did not disgrace himself when 6th on his debut in listed company back in October. He returns after a break and seems to have done very well for his time off. Declan McDonagh renews the partnership.
