We send out a total of 9 runners today between Clonmel and Uttoxeter.
THE ABBEY runs in the BBQ Evening At Clonmel Races Maiden Hurdle. This is his first start for the yard after being brought at the sales back in November. On his hurdling debut he finished 7th behind Silver Star at Kilbeggan and we’re looking forward to seeing him on the track today. Denis O’Regan takes the ride.
We have three representatives in the Camida Beginners Chase. INVINCIBLE CAVE was well beaten by stablemate Ravenhill at Limerick last time out over 2m3f. We’re hoping the step up in trip will help him see out his race. Paddy Merrigan rides. WESTLAND ROW finished 3rd last time out at Kilbeggan behind Robin De Carlow. Again this was over a shorter trip than today and his jumping seemed much better than in some of his previous runs. Brian Hayes takes the ride. WESTERN HONOUR finished 4th at Tipperary back at the beginning of May behind Brahma Bull and is in great form at home. We’re hopeful that he will finish in the frame today under Davy Russell.
In the Appleman’s Beginners Chase we run From Eden and Serious Ego. FROM EDEN (pictured) has won twice over hurdles since joining the yard and made a promising start to his chasing career when finishing 2nd at Kilbeggan back in May. He stands a great chance today with Denis O’Regan in the saddle. SERIOUS EGO makes his debut over fences today. He was a point to point winner back in the spring of 2018 and we wouldn’t be surprised if he ran a big race today. Davy Russell rides.
DOMITIAN runs in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (Mares) INH Flat Race. The point to point winner was 2nd on her bumper debut in Tipperary back in May and all being well should finish in the frame again today under Lisa O’Neill.
BORICE runs in the Barry Rock Memorial Novices Hurdle over 2m7f. Although he has been unsuccessful on his two chasing starts since joining the yard he has some solid French form to his name and the switch to hurdles should suit. Hopefully he’ll finish with his head in front today under Daryl Jacob.
In the Bovis Homes Novices Handicap Hurdle we run GREAT VIZIER. He has finished 3rd on his last two starts in handicap company and will hopefully dominate the small field of three today. Daryl Jacob rides.
