The weather has meant we’ve had to wait a couple of days extra for Saturday’s meeting at Fairyhouse. With the fixture now moved to Tuesday afternoon, we caught up with BetVictor Brand Ambassador Rachael Blackmore to preview both her rides.
First up, I partner An Taibhse (1.55) in the mares’ maiden hurdle for Henry. She ran a lovely race on debut at Limerick the last day, finishing 3rd. She seemed to enjoy her jumping, so we were more than happy with her. With normal improvement she shouldn’t be too far away here. She’s a very genuine horse, so we’re hoping she runs well again.
Ain't That A Shame
My second ride of the day is on Ain’t That A Shame (2.25) in the Robcour colours. He was 5th at Navan the last day on his rules debut. He’ll have come on for that run, but this looks a good race. Julies Stowaway looks the one to beat on form, however, I’m hoping if ours can improve again, he’ll be there at the business end.
