Today we are sending ten horses, all to Bellewstown;
The first runner of the day is AMOR VERDADERO who has hit the crossbar on the last three occasions. She runs in the Western Motors Skoda Mares Maiden Hurdle with Davy Russell in the saddle looking for another consistent run.
In the Fast Shipping Bellewstown Handicap Hurdle we send forward four runners. HIGH EXPECTATIONS ran a big race last time out when coming 5th back in April. Sean Flanagan is on board and hopefully they can have good spin around. Second last time out and a winner before that SONG OF NAMIBIA looks to build on that form with Luke Dempsey taking the reins. Last time out winner STAR MAKER has Davy Russell on board which can hopefully help him get into the frame. Finally, for this race WALKABOUT makes a return to hurdling having had a fruitful spell on the flat. Denis O’Regan is on board in what looks a very competitive race.
We double up in the Byrne Marquees Hilltown Hurdle where Davy Russell rides COUNT SIMON. A horse who has been in great form recently but will be receiving a penalty for those efforts. MAKE MY HEART FLY was unlucky to fall last time out when coming with a run. Denis O’Regan takes the ride and hopefully they have better fortunes this time around.
We send forward another pair for the Fast Terminals Handicap Hurdle. A winner last time out CECIL CORBETT will be ridden by Davy Russell and the ever-consistent DONA KATHARINA will be the mount of Denis O’Regan.
Our finally runner to round off the day is the first-time out WINGS OF DESTINY. This son of Shirocco runs in the McLoughlin Oil INH Flat Race and the face of Bellewstown herself Lisa O’Neill will be taking the ride.
