Galway Festival 2017 Day 2

Day two of the Galway Festival and we have our first runners of the week with four declared today.   Mystical Affair runs in the 7:05 and she'll need to step forward a good deal to play a part today. She's a lovely filly with a likeable forward attitude but this is a competitive maiden [...]

Naas 26/07/17

A busy night at Naas with five runners declared. In the 6:55 we run Bluesbreaker and Master Bond. Bluesbreaker ran very well at Fairyhouse on Sunday showing signs of his old self, he came out of that race well so we thought we'd give him another chance this evening with the hope he builds on [...]

Naas 21/05/17

Geological (4:45) is our only runner today at Naas. He won well the last day at Leopardstown and we're hopeful the four pounds he received for that win won't be enough to stop him. He came out of the race really well and is bouncing again. He's drawn two which is also an advantage. Shane [...]

Chester & Dundalk 12/05/17

Tribal Path (1:50) runs today in Chester. He travelled over on Wednesday afternoon and has settled in well. He may be a big horse but Tribal is incredibly agile and we are hopeful that the track may play to his strength's. Unfortunately, the draw has not been kind but usual tactics will be employed. It [...]

Leopardstown 07/05/17

Geological (3:55) is our reperenstative on a stellar card at Leopardstown today. The ground is described as good to firm which this lad will love. He is also back up to seven furlongs today which plays to his strengths given his mix of speed and stamina he has shown at Dundalk. He has been in [...]

Clonmel 04/04/2017

Indian Tomahawk (5:20) is our sole runner down in Clonmel today. He's slowly coming back to himself and we were very happy with the effort he put in the last day. Hopefully he'll improve with the step up in trip and the switch back to grass might just ignite those sparks. Shane Foley rides.   [...]

Navan 24/04/17

Geological (4:55) had a fantastic winter and after a short break, we recharged his battery and he's ready for a turf campaign. We tried to be clever and use his race fitness at Naas the last day but he just didn't get out of the ground. He's come back in good order and is showing [...]

Navan 23/04/17

We run two at Navan today. Bluesbreaker (2:45) is a course and distance winner and we're hoping for him to bounce back to form today. His first two runs this season just didn't go his way, on both occasions jockeys reported 'tacky' conditions and he just struggled to get his big frame out of the [...]
