It was a great weekend at the Curragh with most enjoyable racing. It was great to see that the management put so many things right since the opening meeting. We now have a stand to match the world class racecourse and it is something we all should be proud of – I hope it gets the support it deserves in the future.
On the track we enjoyed a great weekend – 2 winners and 4 placings from 8 runners. The horses remain in great health and are running really well.
The action is in Gowran Park today where we have 3 runners.
4.45 CASTLE GUEST RONAN WHELAN
Castle Guest is in great form and despite this looking a competitive claimer, I think he has a great chance. He is the stable favourite and it would be great if we could win another race with him at the age of 10 – he still retains all his enthusiasm.
7pm CARTESIENNE RONAN WHELAN
Cartesienne has a good draw. She is a filly that we like and we are looking forward to getting her started. She has a lovely attitude and she will come on from her run.
8.05 KODIANNE MARK GALLAGHER
Kodianne got upset going to post on her last day @ Gowran and also was found to be in season, so that run is best ignored. I would be hopeful of her reproducing the form that saw her placed 2nd at Gowran last season. That run would give her every chance tonight.
