We have runners in Kilbeggan and Leopardstown today.
In Kilbeggan, we have 9 runners.
AMOR VERDADERO runs in the Like Kilbeggan Maiden Hurdle over 2m. This will be her second run since joining the yard. She did not disgrace herself on her last day out in Downpatrick to finish 4th place. She’s back over hurdles today, she pulled up on her last run over hurdles back in November. Hopefully her last run will have given her that little bit of confidence she needs. Davy Russell is in the saddle today.
ARTIC SOFIA runs in the Summer Party Pack Handicap Hurdle over 2m. This will be her first run for us since joining the yard. She has not had a run since last October. Hopefully the break will have freshened her up. She has been working well at home. Denis O’ Regan is in the saddle.
CATS FOR CASH runs in the Irish Farmers Journal Maiden Hurdle over 2m 3f. He ran well back in January to finish in 2nd place. He has been a little more disappointing on his more recent runs. He carries a light weight compared to others in the race which will stand to him. Davy Russell is in the saddle.
FROM EDEN runs in the Wright Windows Anniversary beginners Steeplechase over 2m 3f. He won in Ayr back in April. This will be his first time over fences and we are looking forward to seeing how he finds it. Davy Russell is in the saddle.
MILL QUEST runs in the Belvedere House Gardens Handicap Steeplechase over 2m 3f. She won in Fairyhouse back in April. She has been a star throughout the season. Always running into the top 3 or 4 placings. Davy Russell takes the ride. POORMANS HILL also runs in this. He was quite disappointing last day out in Punchestown finishing at the back of the field. We are hoping for a better run out of him today. Keith Donoghue is in the saddle. ALLEE BLEUE was unfortunate to fall last day out in Limerick back in December. He returns to the track today and we are hoping she will have a good confidence boosting run. Luke Dempsey is in the saddle.
SANTANA PLESSIS runs in the Summer Sunday Festival INH Flat Race. He showed his ability in December when he ran into 2nd place in Punchestown. Hopefully he can get his head in front today. Jamie Codd rides.
Tiger Roll is due to parade in Kilbeggan today.
We have three runners in Leopardstown…
PALLASATOR runs in the Saval Beginners Levmoss Stakes over 1m 6f. He makes his return to the track today having not ran since July ’18. He has been in good form at home and we are looking forward to his run today. Declan McDonogh rides.
TAKE A TURN runs in the Microsoft Cup Lady Riders Handicap. He has been in great form lately, winning on his last two starts. Paula Muir rides who claims 5 lbs.
Finally we have Gerry’s Way in the Tish EBF Median Auction Maiden over 1m. He ran in Gowran Park in May. This run will stand to him today. Declan McDonogh rides.
