Today we head up to Downpatrick with a lorry full as we are set to have 5 runners for the 7 race card.
We have O CONNELL STREET in the opener, the Molson Coors Maiden Hurdle over 2m5f. He showed a great deal of improvement the last day to grab 3rd place. We’ve upped him in trip here which should suit and Bryan Cooper takes the ride.
EYEWITNESS and FLYING GLORY take to the stage for the Irish Thoroughbred Agency Maiden Hurdle. Eyewitness was a good winner of a bumper and moves on to go hurdling. It looks a competitive sort of race but one that will be a nice introduction to hurdling with Denis in the saddle. Flying Glory has her first run on the track and she is a nicely bred filly. It’ll be a big learning experience and she has Kevin Sexton in the saddle.
HELL ON EARTH is top weight in the Molson Coors Handicap Chase over 2m7f. Thanks to the help of Jordan Gainford he will get 7lbs off his back which should be a big help.
Finally in the bumper we have DEVIL’S CUT who will have his first outing on track. He is a well bred sort and we hope he can run well on debut. Hugh McOwan rides and claims 7lbs.
