Today we head down to Gowran Park for Day 1 of their two day meeting.
WESTERN FOLD makes his hurdling debut in the opener, the Xenon Security Maiden Hurdle. He has finished 3rd on both of his bumper starts and should take well to hurdling. Jack Kennedy takes the ride.
In the Gowran Park Racing Club Maiden Hurdle we run WISTERIA BLOOM. He was just touched off in a bumper at Perth last time out which was a year ago. He should take to hurdling well and we’re hoping for a good run from him provided he handles the ground conditions. Jack Kennedy will be in the saddle. THE BAY HORSE is a non runner.
BE MY HERO is a non runner in the Golf At Gowran Park Handicap Hurdle.
We saddle two runners in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Pat Walsh Memorial Mares Hurdle. SAY GOODBYE has been successful over fences on her last two starts but hasn’t been seen on the track for over a year. She’s in great order at home and should go well under Jack Kennedy. AIR DROP steps up in company on her 4th appearance over hurdles today. She found plenty to win at Down Royal last time out and should go well under Jordan Gainford.
Our final runner of the day is AS TEARS GO BY in the 2m4f handicap hurdle. We’ve stepped him up in trip for the first time today and are hoping he can handle the softer conditions. Jack Kennedy rides.
