Things have started to ramp up a gear as the jumps are truly back. Today we send 13 to Fairyhouse.
We kick things off with the Return Of the Jumps Mares Beginners Steeple Chase where we have two runners. First up is EDENE D’ARC who was 2nd in a Novice hurdle event last time out before going on her summer holiday. She has taken to her work well and Davy Russell has been booked to ride. TINTANGLE also makes her seasonal debut. She was a top class Novice hurdler last season and has done very well over the summer. Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
We send another two forward for the Winter Festival Nov30 & Dec1 Beginners Steeple Chase. CHAMPAGNE CLASSIC was placed on his two starts last season after nearly two years off. We hope he can make the same sort of impression again. Jack Kennedy is in the saddle. FLAWLESS ESCAPE ran a good second on his seasonal debut and looks to be in good form. Davy Russell will be taking the reins.
We have just one runner in the next, THISONESFOROLLIE who was highly consistent when racking up a string of 4th place finishes. She has had a decent summer holiday and is fresh for this. Kevin Brogan will be riding and taking a bit of weight of her back.
In the fourth race, we have two runners. DAYLIGHT KATIE was another one who posted some very consistent runs last season. She was twice graded placed and flew home in her bumper. This looks a nice one to get her off the mark over obstacles. SAINT OR SINNER is our other runner in this. She was a winner first time out but her jumping has let her down in her runs since then. Jack Kennedy will be riding and hopefully he can help her overcome these issues.
For the Fairyhouse For Fundraisers Handicap Hurdle we have another two runners. THE ABBEY was second last time out and is in good form going here. He will be penalised for his good form and we have booked Davy Russell to ride. Our second runner is FIGHT FOR LOVE who had his first run for the yard last time out. It was great to get a few miles into his legs after a long break and he should have come on for it. Jack Kennedy will be taking the ride.
We don’t have anything in the next race but in the bumper we send forward three. FARSIDEOFTHEMOON will be seeing the track for the first time and will be in the trusty hands of Lisa O’Neill. The horse will need the run and we hope to learn a lot from the outing. SINGING TREE is another one who is relatively new to racing. She was down the field on her debut and looks to build from that Paddy Vaughan will be riding. Lastly LADY OF ELYSIUM has been 2nd on both her previous starts. She looks to go one better we hope and we have put Jamie Codd on board.
We wish all our runners and riders the very best of luck and for a safe return.
