Today we head down to Sligo, where we have 5 runners.
We have two runners in the Guinness Rated Novice Hurdle. The first of which is HAMMERSTEIN, who is also the top weight. He will need to put in a big effort conceding weight all around. Keith Donoghue takes the ride. Our second horse in the race is COOLONGOLOOK, who has dropped down the weights which will help. Rachael Blackmore will take the ride.
In the next race, the Carlsberg Handicap Hurdle, RIO DE CERISY will take his chances. He hasn’t set the world alight so we’re trying him out with blinkers, to see if they help. Brian Hayes will have his work cut out and he takes the ride.
STEEL CAP runs in the Kilcawley Construction Maiden Hurdle over 2m 4f. He is another giving weight all around as he carries 11st 12lbs. His 2nd place last time out under the same weight gives us hope for a repeat performance. Keith Donoghue takes the ride.
Our final runner of the evening is GRAINEYHILL in the Rockshore Cider Handicap Hurdle . He isn’t the most consistent and we’re hoping that being paired with old partner Keith Donoghue will bring a bit of fire into his run.
We wish all our runners and riders the best of luck and for a safe return.
