Act Of God
My afternoon starts with Act Of God for Eddie O’Grady. I have won on the flat on him at Tramore before and can go well fresh. His maiden hurdle win over Razoul reads as pretty good form given what he has gone on to achieve. I am looking forward to the ride and, hopefully, we can be involved at the finish.
Next up for me is Fierami. He was just fifth in his first hurdle start last time out. I was a little disappointed with him at Kilbeggan that day. Hopefully he has learned from that run and come on for it as he seems in good form at home.
Infuse is my third of the night for Colm Murphy. He has ran OK since the restart of racing, finishing seventh on both occasions at Limerick and Bellewstown. Given how impressively Gunfire Reef won yesterday for Mags Mullins at Limerick, he could prove hard to beat if turned out again quickly to try and make it three wins in a row.
My final ride of the night in on Oromo for Karl Thornton. He has been very good to me recently as we teamed up to win on the Flat at Fairyhouse twice since the restart. Karl’s horses seem to be in good form and I am really looking forward to getting him back over hurdles in this two mile four handicap.
