It’s all about the jumps today as we head to Tramore with 6 runners for their evening card.
We don’t have anything in the opener and send HOLY MOTIVATION to the FormaHoof.com Beginners Chase over 2m5f. This horse had a very educational run the last time and will certainly look to improve from there. This race will be very similar to her last start and Keith Donoghue will ride.
GIVE HIM TIME defied Davy Russell’s doubts the last day at Kilbeggan to contribute to 5 winners for the yard that day. We’ve switched back to chasing after the confidence boost of Kilbeggan, on ratings he is in at the deep end but hopefully he can continue to improve, Sean O’Keeffe rides and claims a further 5lbs.
ESCORT’NAMIX managed to get her head into the frame again last time out and will be fitted with a tongue tie for the first time here. She continues on the hunt for a maiden hurdle and looks again to go a place betters. This will be another ride for 5lbs claimer Sean O’Keeffe.
Another mare to run this afternoon is MARIA FRANCESCA in the Kilmeaden Handicap Hurdle over 2m. We’ve decided to drop her back in trip a bit as she wasn’t quite finishing off her races as we had hoped. Keith Donoghue has been booked to ride.
Last time out winner INSANE BOLT looks to follow that up here in the 2m5f VSDirect Your Idea Our Solution Handicap Hurdle. This horse had to fight to get his win the last day and has gone up in the handicap because of that. To try and counter this we have booked 5lbs claimer Sean O’Keeffe. It’ll be a tough ask but he looks well in on ratings.
Finally we have GERALDO in the bumper. We were all taken by surprise to see him go down to his stable mate but that run will have only improved his fitness and he will once again be partnered by Jamie Codd.
