Today we have 6 runners for a soft to heavy Clonmel, which is nearly one for ever race.
COOLAGH PARK seeks to break his maiden tag over hurdles after finishing a distant 2nd last time out. Although he was 19L behind the winner he managed to put 7ls between him and his closest rival in third. Keith Donoghue has been booked to ride.
For the next maiden hurdle we have IMMORTALITY who we’ve decided to claim off with Kevin Brogan and his 7lbs claim. She doesn’t look the most straight forward type but we hope she can find a bit of improvement.
We don’t have any runners in the third race and move on to the fourth where we have EMPIRE BURLEQUE. This horse had a baptism of fire on his debut over fences and made plenty of mistakes. He’s had a bit more schooling and hopefully that’s done the trick, Keith will ride.
The feature of the day is the Boylesports Chase over 2m3f where we have DEATH DUTY and Luke Dempsey. It’s a small but hot field and this horse ran well at Cheltenham before getting tired at the end.
ROBIN DEUZ POIS was a winner last time out over in the UK and she will be partnered by Sean O’Keeffe in the opportunity chase. She remains in good form and goes here with the hope of getting in the frame.
Finally we have FRONTAL ASSAULT in the bumper. Third behind the Champion Bumper winner Ferny Hollow last time out at Fairyhouse. There could be a few nice ones in here but the bit of racecourse experience will serve him well.
We wish all our runners and riders the very best of luck and for a safe return.
