With the ground the way it is, we’ll be light enough on the ground runner’s wise this weekend. Most of ours like a bit of nice ground and while the horses looks great and have plenty done, you can tear the heart out of them by running them on ground that they won’t like.
It’s a long season and we just have to be patient and wait for conditions to improve and we have plenty ready to run. The ground has taken a hammering over the last number of months and it will take a while yet for it to dry up.
We’ll make a few tentative entries for the weekend, but we’ll need things to improve significantly this week and we’ll have an update, should we run any, later this week.
We run Terzetto in what looks a very competitive fillies maiden (over seven furlongs) at Dundalk today and Conor Hoban rides. She is ready to start off and will appreciate the surface. She has a great attitude, and she has been working nicely at home, but she has a poor draw (11).
Whatever she does today, she will improve a fair bit for the experience, but in saying that, I think she’ll run a nice race.
We also run Liberatio in the claimer at Dundalk tomorrow and he seems to be well suited by the race conditions and I’d expect him to get into the shake up. He ran a bit free the last day and he couldn’t get any cover from a poor draw and that run is best ignored.
He drop back in trip today and he was only touched off in a maiden a couple of runs ago and if he can back to that type of form, he’d have every chance. He has been unlucky to be drawn out wide again, but if Colm (O’Donoghue) can manage to get a bit of cover, he should run a big race.
