Today we send horses to three racecourses; Perth, Tipperary and Bellewstown.
Starting off with Perth, CATS FOR CASH runs in the opener; the Follow@Racingtv on Twitter Maiden Hurdle. Next up is DUKE’S GIRL who takes a step up in trip for the Join Racingtv Now Novices’ Handicap Hurdle. Hopefully she can build on her recent performances. CREADAN GRAE exited contention early on last time out when unseating the rider at the first, and runs in the Watch Racingtv now Handicap Chase. NED STARK was third on his seasonal debut last month at this track and is another looking to try and improve from last time. He goes for the 3m Racing For Everyone #racingwithpride Handicap Chase. Our final runner at Perth is SKEAPING who was 2nd last time out after pulling throughout the race. Hopefully he can settle and run a good race. Dicky Johnson will be piloting all of our Perth runners today and can hopefully help them to run to their potential.
Heading over to Bellewstown VEINARD makes a return to the flat in the Conachy’s Dunleer Seat Maiden. Declan McDonogh takes the ride. He was 4th last time out and this will be a slight step up in trip on that run. Next up is ARCTIC SOFIA in the Hennessy & Perozzi Handicap, who will be making her flat debut for our yard. She was 7th on her last flat run and is upped 2f here at Bellewstown. Declan McDonogh is jocked up. Our final runner at Bellewstown is FLAT TO THE MAX who runs in the Racingtv.com (QR) Race. Hopefully a drop back in trip and suitable ground will see an improvement in his form.
Finally, we send two runners down to Tipperary. TOMBSTONE goes forward for the big race of the card in the Grade 3 Kevin McManus Bookmaker Grimes Hurdle. It looks a hot race and hopefully he can run to his merits. Lastly, WARLIKE INTENT runs in the Dundrum House Hotel Maiden Hurdle. He’ll be carrying top weight over 2m4f in this big field and will need a few things to go right for him. Davy Russell partners both of these runners.
