Fairyhouse and Cork

Over in Cork first of all we have CALL ME LYREEN in the Bar One Racing Hurdle. He comes here fresh with a decent eachway chance. Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.

Our second runner of the afternoon in Cork is FORTUNEDEFORTUNATA who goes in a beginners chase. This will be new territory for this horse with Jordan Gainford booked.

Over in Fairyhouse our first runner is OMNISCENT who is having his first run over hurdles in this big field. He will have a lot to overcome on his debut but we have Jack Kennedy in the saddle.

We’re double handed in the novice handicap hurdle with LUCKY LYREEEN and PACINI. Lucky Lyreen has a heavy weight to bear so we claim with Danny Gilligan claiming 5lbs. Pacini has first time blinkers on for this with Jack Kennedy booked to ride.

In the Grade 2 novice hurdle we have DEE CAPO who did so much wrong Navan and was only just beaten. He could be a nice horse for the future and is Jack’s pick.

ANGOSTURA moves up in class for this grade 2. He looks classy enough and should enjoy the ground with Jack Kennedy.

PATS CHOICE is a reliable sort and goes for another Listed handicap chase. He skipped Cheltenham and comes here instead. He has form with a few of these and Jack Kennedy is booked to ride.

For the Grade 1 WillowWarm Gold Cup we have SAINT FELICIEN and ZANAHIYR. Saint Felicien who was running a cracker in Cheltenham before being brought down, Jack rides. Zanahiyr was another who ran brilliantly in Cheltenham and he will be ridden by Keith Donoghue.

Lastly we have the Sales Bumper where we have BUTCHERS BILL and SPINOLA BAY. Butchers Bill has a brilliant pedigree and is a half brother to the very good Romeo Coolio. This might be a bit early for him but we have Josh Williamson booked to ride and claim 7lbs. Spinola Bay could be a diamond in the rough. He has one of the lesser pedigrees in this race but looks a proper race horse, he will be ridden by Harry Swan who claims 5lbs.
