BetVictor ambassador Rachael Blackmore heads to Listowel today where their fantastic week of racing continues, the highlight of the week has to be the Kerry National which Rachael won last year on Poker Party.
She's pretty good, isn't she?

It was great to ride a double on Saturday at Navan, this week Listowel takes centre stage and I have three rides here on Monday that I am looking forward to.
My first ride is Defan for Henry, he is a really lovely horse who has been doing everything right at home and has schooled well. This is his first run on the track so we will learn a lot more about him from tomorrow and build on it but I think he could be involved in the finish based on what he has shown us at home so far.
My second ride of the day is Guinevere for Ray Cody in the two-mile handicap hurdle she runs here in first-time blinkers and has plenty of ability. She has been busy over both codes this season and ran a lovely race to win at the Galway Festival, Ray took the race last year with Razoul, fingers crossed she can do the same today.
The Wonkey Tonk
My final ride of the day is The Wonkey Tonk for Henry in a handicap over two miles four, this looks a competitive little race but the yard are in great form. He won back in July at Roscommon under Hugh Morgan, if he can repeat a run like that here we hopefully will be in the shakeup.
