3 Aug 2018 Race Previews

We have four runners in the Premier Handicap over 1m 4f. Gustavus Vassa (Danny) has to shoulder top weight after going up 9 lbs following his close second at the Curragh over this trip on Derby weekend. He should handle this ground and we are hoping that this track might suit him better than the Curragh. Limini (Kevin Manning) was second to stable companion Uradel in the Amateur Handicap on Monday and she seems to have taken that race well. She is due to go up 11lbs after today so she must have fantastic chance off today’s mark. Nessun Dorma (Billy Lee) is having his first run in a handicap. He won very easily in a flat maiden over 1m 5f at Ballinrobe last time but we will just have to see how he gets on in this company. Law Girl (Rachael Blackmore) has been working well but she really needs better ground to be seen at her best.

Wicklow Brave (Colin Keane) goes for the 1m 6f conditions race. We have won this race on the last two occasions and hopefully this fellow will make it three in a row. The race conditions really suit and we know he likes this track. He proved his well being when winning at Killarney a couple of weeks ago and we will be disappointed if he doesn’t make the most of this opportunity.
