We’ve a lovely set of horses racing local today in Fairyhouse as the season starts to move forward.
SURIN takes her chances in the Return of The Jumps Mares Beginners Chase over 2m in a small field of 9 runners. She ran to a high standard last season and this big scopey mare deserves to take her chances over bigger obstacles, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
Next up is AFOREMENTIONED in the Winter Festival Nov 28 & 29 Nov Chase over 2m5f. This horse won well at the start of the month at Clonmel scoring by 3Ls. This is another small field with some well schooled members taking part, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
A real stand out filly for us last season was QUEENS BROOK who finished best of the girls in the Cheltenham Champion Bumper when coming 3rd. She graduates to hurdling today as she takes on the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden Hurdle over 2m. This looks like it’ll be the full field of 16 runners. She gets a penalty for her two bumper wins so carries 11st7lbs, Davy Russell has been booked to ride.
MRS DAVIES is our next runner in the Return of The Jumps Handicap Hurdle over 2m2f. This mare is off a nice mark here and we have booked Keith Donoghue to ride.
Finally in the bumper we have CALAGOGO a nicely bred son of Doyen who connections have had a lot of luck with in the past. There are a few more exposed horses in this field and it looks a good opportunity to take his chance, Jamie Codd has been booked to ride.
