We’re fresh into the new year and we’re on the hunt for a few winners to reign it in with. We head to Cork today with 7 runners.
Our first runner comes in the first race, the Rated Novice Hurdle where we have TEXARD. This horse has seen a bit of improvement with his runs as the pin begins to drop. It’s a nice small field and he will have Jack Kennedy on board today.
Next up is RECENT REVELATIONS, another in search of breaking his maiden. He struggled last time with his jumping making a bad mistake at the last and throughout. He might need a bit more time to figure out that aspect of the game. Jack Kennedy will ride him.
ESCARIA TEN is up next in another maiden hurdle. He will be having his first run for his new owners The McNeill Family. He was a smart point to point winner and wasn’t disgraced on his recent starts under rules. Adrian Heskin will be flying over to take the ride.
We’re double handed in the next race, a handicap hurdle, where we have CAMPEADOR and FLAXEN FLARE competing. Campeador has taken a drop in class to come here as he was struggling before, however he has also been burdened with top weight for this event. Keith Donoghue will ride. Flaxen Flare has only had the one start so far this season and will have come on for I, Jack Kennedy will take the ride.
We skip a race before MINELLA TILL DAWN in the handicap chase. He was a faller last time out when in 4th place. Hopefully he has got his confidence back after that. Mark Walsh will ride.
Lastly we have THE SLIDING ROCK in the bumper, who ran a very big race when coming third on her first racecourse appearance. She will have improved for the run and we have put Jamie Codd on her for this run.
Best of luck to all our runners and riders.
