We wrap the weekend up with 6 runners down in Cork.
Our first runner is GET RICH DIE PLYIN in the INH Stallion Owners EBF Novice Hurdle over 3m. This horse supplied Jack Kennedy with his first win after returning from his leg injury. Today he will be partnered with Conor Orr who claims 5lbs while Jack is once again on the sidelines. It’s a nice small field and the claim should help his chances.
ELITE TROOPER GREY takes a step up in trip here to 2m3f for this handicap hurdle and sits close to the bottom of the weights with Kevin Sexton on board.
A nice horse from last season, COKO BEACH goes for the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase. He’s a well built gelding who looking right for the job. He usually takes a run to get fit but we will be hoping for a good run off the bat, Keith Donoghue has been booked to ride.
Next is the feature race of the day where we have two runners and a new coming to the yard in the shape of TIMOTEO. This horse is a very capable chaser over in the UK before joining us and gets in off a nice mark and with the aid of 5lbs claimer Conor Orr, hopefully he can get off on the right foot for connections. DAKOTA MOIRETTE was a none runner the last day and is in fine fettle coming to this and will be off rock bottom weight with 7lbs claimer Gavin Brouder on board.
Finally in the bumper we have TORYGRAPH who was promising in bumpers last season and starts this season where he left off. Jack Wildman will get the ride and claim 7lbs.
