We have seven runners at The Curragh tomorrow and we start off with two in the mile and a quarter handicap. Castle Guest (R Whelan) has top weight and he has dropped down to a nice mark. I was delighted with his last run at Leopardstown, but he has a poor draw to overcome which won’t be easy in such …
We bring a nice team of horses to Killarney today and we start off with Karasi (R Whelan) in the opening two-year-old maiden. He ran a lovely race on his debut at The Curragh, where he stayed on well to finish third and he has been in good form since. He has been drawn out wide in 9, which isn’t …
