Downpatrick Day 1

We start off the two day meeting in Downpatrick with 3 runners

DISCO DANCER is our first runner of the day in the mares maiden hurdle. Since winning her bumper she has shown plenty of promise over hurdles, including finishing 2nd last time out in Limerick. She stands a good chance of getting on the scoreboard today with Kevin Sexton in the saddle.

TOWNHILL PENNY sports first time blinkers in the beginners chase. She’ll need to take a big step forward on what she has shown so far but we’re hoping the change of headgear will see some improvement. Jake Coen rides.

Our final runner of the day is BEAUFORT SCALE in the bumper. He was 4th on his sole point to point start and made a promising debut in bumpers when 4th in Clonmel. He was well held the last day in Wexford but we’re hopeful he’ll show a better account of himself today and holds strong each way claims. Harry Swan rides.
