Today we head down to Tipperary where we have 5 runners and to the Curragh where we have 2.
Firstly to Tipperary, MAKE MY HEART FLY who will be having her second start over Chase fences in the Walter Hennessy Auction Mares Beginners Chase. She’s very tough and will always try her best. Davy Russell takes the ride.
In the next race, the Tipperary Racecourse Beginners Steeple Chase we have GLOBAL JACKPOT. He wasn’t the cleanest when jumping last time out, resulting in him pulling up. He will have to improve on that to be able to feature here. Davy Russell rides and can hopefully help him get around.
THE BIG LENSE has been there or there abouts recently. He goes in the Packie Downey Memorial Rated Novices’ Chase. Another ride for Davy Russell here and hopefully they can get around safely.
Daryl Jacob flies over to ride MRS LOVETT in the Tipperary Town Plaza Plate Handicap Steeple Chase, where she is at the top end of the weights. She was a little disappointing last time out and made a few mistakes. A smaller field should help her settle and get into the race better.
Lastly at Tipperary, TOUCH BASE runs in the BBQ Night At Tipperary Aug 29th Beg Steeple Chase. He was 17L 2nd last time out to Blow by Blow. It’s a big field and Davy Russell takes the ride.
It’s over to the Curragh for something a little bit different. We send two horses for the Corinthian Challenge. SKEAPING will be the mount of Jerry Horan, who has been riding out at the yard a few mornings a week. Jerry works as an Auctioneer at Goffs and will be having his first charity race ride start here. Our second horse is FLAT TO THE MAX who will be ridden by charity race veteran Maurice McCarthy. We hope the Corinthian Challenge Charity Race Series can be a stellar success as it aims to raise funds for the Injured Jockey’s Fund. A charity that the racing world would be lost without.
