Today we have 6 runners under both codes and across two courses.
We head down to Cork for the Children Under 14 Race Free Handicap Hurdle for CATS FOR CASH. He found himself at the front half of the pack at Galway but was no threat to the leading trio.
He seems to be in a positive vein of format the moment and Davy Russell will take the ride.
We have two runners in the next race, the Joe Walsh Memorial Hurdle. Top weight goes to COUNT SIMON who was unable to continue the winning streak last time when he was 3rd at Bellewstown. Hopefully he should be in the mix as he is a consistent type that will give it a good go. Davy Russell rides. EVERYBREATHYOUTAKE is our second runner and he found one too good for him last time out. He has another crack at 3 miles and Keith Donoghue rides.
Our final runner at Cork is RIAN THOMAS in the Enjoy Afternoon Tea At Cork INH Flat Race. Things didn’t go his way in Kilbeggan and it was good to see him return to form last time out. He is yet to win, so Jamie Codd has been booked to help to try and change this.
Over to Naas for a couple of flat runners. CAPTAIN POWER runs in the Naas Racecourse Handicap over 6f. He still hasn’t quite found his mark and the stalls still present a risk factor to his race. Hopefully he can overcome the later and see how he fairs at the weights. Gary Halpin rides.
The final runner in Naas is RYTHMIC MELODY in the ISF EBF Fillies Median Auction Maiden over 7f. She was able to build on her debut last time out as she finished just outside the placings in 4th. The 7f looks to be her trip and hopefully further improvement can come with experience. Chris Hayes will take the ride.
We wish all our horses and riders the best of luck and for a safe return.
