We head back to Listowel today with 7 runners.
Our first runner of the day is SANTANA PLESSIS in the Remembering Tommy McGivern Maiden Hurdle. He’s been knocking on the door in his last 4 starts and we’re hoping today could be his chance to score. Jack Kennedy rides.
Next up we have MALONE ROAD in the Seamus Mulvaney Bookmaker Novice Hurdle. It was great to see him continue his winning ways at Kilbeggan after such a long time off the track. He has certainly come on plenty for that run and looks the one to beat in today’s field. Jack Kennedy rides.
We run METAL MAN in the Devon Inn Hotel Handicap Hurdle. A winner on his last start 12 days ago, he comes into the race with a good chance today. Jack Kennedy rides.
In the feature race, the Guinness Kerry National, we are represented by RAVENHILL and THREE MUSKETEERS. Ravenhill (pictured) was unlucky not to score in this race 12 months ago when finishing 2nd behind Poker Party. He has since gone on to win the Amateur Riders Novice Chase at Cheltenham back in March. We have a good 7lb claimer in Rob James onboard today and he stands every chance of finishing in the frame. Three Musketeers came with a late run to finish 2nd in the Midlands National back in July. He also stands a good chance today with only 10st5lb on his back and Jack Kennedy in the saddle.
AFOREMENTIONED runs in the Brandon Hotel Beginners Chase. He tends to run well on the good ground and hopefully we’ll see him finish in the placings today under Jack Kennedy.
Our last runner of the day is BALLYMONEY in the Listowel Vintners Association INH Flat Race. He ran on well in the closing stages at Punchestown earlier in the month and has come on well for the run. Hopefully he’ll finish in the frame today under Jamie Codd.
