We came home with a great haul yesterday, it was fabulous to have a four timer and supply Jordan Gainsford with his first win as a professional on the 25/1 shot Fierami. Today we go to Fairyhouse where every inch of sunshine will play it’s part in drying out the heavy ground.
For the opening maiden hurdle we have two runners. RAAMEZ probably won’t enjoy the ground here today but every race he runs serves as valuable experience to him with Keith Donoghue. SHOWBUSINESS keeps improving and his first run for us showed that when he was 2nd in Naas, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
We have a big break of three races with no runners then we come back for Division I of the 2m3f Maiden Hurdle. FOLCANO was denied his race the last day in the stewards room when taken across the track, he is none the worse for it and looks very strong going forward with Jack in the saddle. GAD MACKER looks like he could be a nice type and sure to improve for whatever he does here today and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue. Old Town Garde will be a non-runner and Prevaricate is first reserve.
Division II will be just as full with 4 runners for us today, FIRE SQUADRON will come on for his run the last day and should be thereabout with Jack Kennedy in the saddle. SMOKEY THE BANDIT will have a tongue tie fitted for the first time today and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue. LANDING ZONE will get hooded for the first time today to switch things up and will be ridden by Jody McGarvey. Finally we have MR SOLOMON who we will be claiming off with Hugh McOwan, he should be better for his break over the Christmas.
Finally in the bumper we have WHERE IT ALL BEGAN who posted a good run on debut and is likely to improve for it again, he will be ridden by Jamie Codd.
