Clonmel:

Six of our runners make their way to Clonmel today in search of winners. We begin with GUN MERCHANT in the first, a bumper winner on his last start, he returns after a break. His experience in the point to point field will stand to his jumping today and we hope he can provide his syndicate with another good day out, Davy Russell rides. FIGHT FOR LOVE also lines up in the same race, he is a new recruit to the yard from England, he seems to be going well at home and fingers crossed he can make his Irish debut an encouraging one. Jack Kennedy rides.

SAINT OR SINNER lines up against her own sex in the Mares Maiden Hurdle. She was disappointing on her jumps debut but is in great form at the moment, she carries a winners penalty but has Jack Wildman on board claiming 7lbs off her back.

MAKE MY HEART FLY runs in the “Captain Christy Rated Novice Steeplechase”. She took a crashing fall on her last outing in Sligo but has come out of that none the worst for wear. She has been schooling well at home so hopefully with a clear round she wont be far away. Jack Kennedy rides.

We have two lining up in the closing bumper. LADY OF ELYSIUM ran a credible second on her latest outing after returning from a break. She gets a mares allowance here and has Jamie Codd is back on board. THE ROCKING CHAIR is also in the line up, he makes his racecourse debut and in a small field hopefully he can make his presence known, Lisa O’Neill rides.
