We’re back jumping again in what looks like a very tough day at Fairyhouse. The ground looks like it could cut up making it very testing going for the horses later on in the day.
Up first is TEAHUPOO in the ITM Vertual Stallion Trail Hurdle. This horse has already received quote for the Triumph and we hope he can live up to the hype. He comes to us already a winner in France but he will be coming up against some other very hot juveniles here where he will be ridden by Puppy Power.
Division I of the Mares maiden hurdle we have a new recruit CALLAGHY ROSE. She goes back to the likes of One Cool Cookie and her dam won a bumper on her only start. This daughter of Court Cave has already had a taste of the track and should surly improve for it and will be ridden by Jack Kennedy.
PASSION VIEW runs in Div II of the Mares maiden and comes with a slightly different profile. She is already a winner of a point to point so is well schooled over obstacles. This looks the more difficult of the two races but she will be well up for it.
Next up in the Handicap Hurdle over 2m7f where we have two runners. ELWOOD makes the switch back to hurdles having lost his confidence over fences recently. This should be a great confidence boost for this talented horse and he will be ridden by Eoin O’Connell who claims 5lbs. SWORDSMAN will be the mount of Jack Kennedy who returns from a bit of a lay off but should run well.
The feature of the day is next, the Grade A Dan & Joan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase over 2m1f. CHOSEN MATE is top weight for this event and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue. OR JAUNE DE SOMOZA has only had the two starts with us so far and has run well on both those occasions, he will be ridden by Jack Kennedy. TIMOTEO is another one that has been running well and will be partnered by Denis O’Regan. DAKOTA MOIRETTE currently sits as first reserve and we will have to wait.
We have another two for the Beginners Chase over 2m1f where THATSY will take on ARAMAX. Thatsy has had three runs over fences now so is well able for this and will be ridden by Jack Kennedy. ARAMAX has one less start but should find improvement in this and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue.
MORATORIUM goes for the Rated Novices Chase where he will be ridden by Kevin Sexton. He has placed in some pretty hot chases this season and looks to take on this open looking race
Finally in the bumper we have GERRI COLOMBE who was an expensive point to point purchase and looks an exciting prospect as he makes his rules debut under the guidance of Jamie Codd.
