Today we have 9 runners across three racecourses.
Our first runner of the day is RHYTHMIC MELODY, who runs in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden over 6f at Fairyhouse. This daughter of Dawn Approach will be having her first taste of racing and will have Chris Hayes at the helm. Her dam was a winner at 2 and placed on her first run. Hopefully this filly can follow in her mothers footsteps and produce a pleasing run first time out.
Our next runner at Fairyhouse is POUR SIOUX another first time out runner for the yard. she goes in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden over 7f. A half sister to three winners, the extra time will have done her some benefit allowing her to mature before running. Chris Hayes takes the ride. Also in this race is IS FANTASTIC another debutant for the yard. A daughter of Arcano and out of a Choisir mare, this run will be very educational and informative towards her future career. Declan McDonogh will be getting the leg up.
The second racecourse we head to is Sligo where TAPENADE runs in the Durkin Bros Electrical Maiden Hurdle. Yet to break his maiden, Davy Russell is on board to try and change that.
Next up is last time out winner AMOR VERDADERO. She runs in the I.S.F EBF Mares Novices Handicap Hurdle over 2m. She looks to extend her bout of good fortune. Davy Russell rides as they look to finish in the frame.
SKEAPING runs in the Clayton Hotel Handicap Hurdle where he will be carrying top weight. This will be a big ask for him so Davy Russell has been given the ride to get the very best out of him.
Finally for Sligo is LAST GOLDEN TICKET, who goes for the Ladies Day At Sligo Races INH Flat Race over 2m2f. This son of Sholokhov is making his racecourse debut and has Jamie Codd on board. It’ll be a competitive affair and we hope for an educational run which will teach us more about this horse.
Not to be forgotten, we send two horses across the sea to Perth. First up is BORICE, a very impressive winner last time out when scoring by 34 length. He faces only 4 other competitors in the opener. Daryl Jacob is on board and we’ll be hoping for another good run.
Our last horse on the list is PAT’S OSCAR, a faller last time out over hurdles looks to put that behind her as she makes her chasing debut. This is a track that Gordon likes and hopefully this mare can get back some good form. Daryl Jacob will be taking the ride.
