It was great to get a win on the board yesterday and to see all the horses running so well. We get the go ahead bright and early for Fairyhouse today as the going remains heavy.
The card kicks off with a beginners chase over 2m5f for which we have two runners. BRAESIDE was a non-runner yesterday as the ground was drying out fast, he is in good order and goes forward for this with Jack Kennedy in the saddle. Keith Donoghue has been booked to ride DESIRE DE JOIE who switches to cheekpieces for today’s run.
Top of the weights in the Cavalor Equine Nutrition Handicap Chase is DAKOTA MOIRETTE who we have decided to claim off of with Jack Foley who takes away 7lbs.
Jack Kennedy rides ROBIN DEUZ POIS in the Follow Fairyhouse On Social Handicap Chase over 3m1f. This mare has been putting up good form figures lately and is on a nice mark here so we hope she can run a nice race for connections.
The Greek is first reserve for Division I but we haven’t heard anything, thankfully the course isn’t too far away so if he gets in we have plenty of time to get him there, Jack Kennedy is booked.
GRAND PARADIS has a tongue tie fitted for the first time as he goes for Division II of the maiden hurdle. He looks a very talented young horse who should improve for his run the last day, Jack Kennedy has been booked. Landing Zone is in the same position as The Greek as first reserve, so we will wait and see.
We have another two runners for the Easter Festival Maiden Hurdle over 2m4f, DIRECT FIRE and FOXHOLE. Direct Fire looks to have found himself a nice race here and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride. Foxhole needs to improve on recent form and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue.
Finally in the Opportunity Handicap Hurdle we have top weight ENNEMI PUBLIC who will be ridden by Jack Wildman who has a 4lbs claim in this race.
