It was a busy weekend where we broke 70 winners for the season and Tiger Roll took home Performance of the Year at the McCoy Awards.
Back to reality and we have 4 runners over in Roscommon.
We hit things off with HEREDITARY RULE in the first race. A winning pointer in the UK from a good yard and now trying his hand under rules for us. Jumping shouldn’t be an issue and its a big field which he should get plenty of cover. We hope he can make a good debut for connections and kick things off for the week. Davy Russell will be taking the ride.
It’s a long wait till our next runner, as we have 2 in the seventh race, the Castlerea Beginners chase. FLAWLESS ESCAPE looked a classy horse last season but jumping proved to be a slight issue. He’s had a long holiday and we hope that has freshened him up. Davy Russell will be taking the ride. Our other contender is SWORDSMAN who looked good over hurdles last season and is tried over bigger obstacles here. Jack Kennedy will take the ride.
Finally, PART TIME AFFAIR runs in the last, the Thanks For Supporting Roscommon Racecourse INH Flat Race. Debut for the yard was in a much tougher contest last time out, which may have overwhelmed him. This seems a much more open affair and hopefully he has taken on board everything from his first experience. Jamie Codd will be doing the driving.
We wish all our runners and riders the very best of luck and for a safe return.
