It’s going to be a wet one here at home but things look very good over in America for our overseas raiders.
We have a small team going to Limerick, where we kick things off with INNELLEN SHORE in the Handicap hurdle over 2 miles. This horse is starting back after a year off the track so is coming here fresh. We have decided to claim here with Carl Millar taking 7lbs off. Hopefully this horse can build on his form last year and progress here.
For the Listed Cailin Alainn Mares hurdle we have the return of RIVIERE D’ETEL. This is her first start over hurdles since March 2021. She is in good form and a very talented mare. Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride and she looks well treated by the conditions.
Finally our last runner in Ireland today is THE WALLPARK in the Listed Novice Hurdle over 2m5f. This looks a very smart horse who is climbing the ladder and this looks competitive for the small field. Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.
Over in Far Hills our first runner of the afternoon is KYOGO in the three year old hurdle. It was great to see this horse win over in Perth and we hope hes good enough to score here with Jack Kennedy in the saddle.
Next up is the wonderful CALICO, this filly has danced every dance for her connections and has taken them on a wonderful journey. She goes in the Sport of Kings 4yo hurdle and we hope she has a good chance. Jack Kennedy takes the ride.
On the hunt for black type is SAY GOODBYE who runs in the black type filly and mare hurdle. She ran a cracker after a year off to be second in a Listed mares hurdle in Galway at the end of September and we hope that form is enough to get her in the frame here with Jack Kennedy in the saddle.
Finally in the big one we have SALVADOR ZIGGY. This race has a good history of coming to Ireland. Ziggy looks a stand out on his recent form and should go well. It is great to see this race attract another international field and this would be an amazing experience for owner breeders the Hurleys as he means so much to them. Jack Kennedy will take the rider and hopefully we will be cheering them home.
