After a rare Sunday off, we are back racing at Fairyhouse today with three runners, which includes Zarzyni in the Listed Blenheim Stakes. My thoughts on today’s runners are below.
4.05 Slieve Bearnagh (Ronan Whelan) & Overtake (Ben Coen)
Slieve Bearnagh is a well bred horse and I am looking forward to getting him started. We like him and he’s a big scopey horse and like all of our debutantes, I expect that he will improve for today’s run. He is ready to start off and he should learn plenty today.
Overtake had a good enough start at The Curragh the last day and he has come forward for that. I’d expect to see an improved performance from him today and the forecast good ground will be fine for both of them.
5.10 Zarzyni (Ronan Whelan)
He has a good draw and that is always a help around here. I was delighted with his run the last day and he will be sharper for that. Ger’s filly (Soul Search) looks the one on ratings and she brings very good form into the race. But I’ve been delighted with our horse and he is taking a small drop in class which will help him, but it was a good race the last day. That was his first run over six and he has sharpened up for it and I am expecting a big run from him.
