The team at home will be flat out getting everything sorted for the Festival but we will still have a few nice horses for home that we send to Gowran Park.
Our first runner of the afternoon is COOLAGH PARK is getting the idea and ran a nice race the first time over hurdles. We’ve decided to bring him back to 2m as he had a promising bumper over a similar distance. Keith Donoghue will ride.
Next up is HELL ON EARTH who did a great job last time and was just headed on the run in when chasing down the winner. We’ve decided to go with Luke Dempsey as he is light and can give this horse a strong ride.
For the feature race we have DIAMOND TURF who improved last time to finish 2nd and we’re going to put him over a little further. We’ve also decided to claim off him and have put up the inform 7lbs claimer Gavin Brouder.
Our penultimate horse is FLAWLESS ESCAPE who we’ve switched back to chasing having not found any favour hurdling last time. He will be ridden by Keith Donoghue and we hope he can regain some of his form.
Lastly we have COQOLINO in the pointers bumper. Like a few of these he was a winner of his point to point. He is a very nice horse and we’re hopeful he can do well for his new connections. Jamie Codd will ride.
We also have two runners over in Ayr today. AERO MAJESTIC will be making his debut for the yard and it looks like he may have found a soft race. It’ll be a very educational run for both us and him and he will be partnered by Richard Johnson.
Finally we have DEMOCRATIC OATH who has had a few nice runs for us over in the UK now and like the previous horse might have found himself in a handy bumper. This will be another ride for Richard Johnson.
We wish all our horses the best of luck and for a safe return.
