BetVictor Ambassador Rachael Blackmore fills us in on her four rides at Tramore on Thursday, talks about one she was supposed to be on at Warwick and tells us about her reaction to being nominated for the BBC World’s Sport Star Of The Year award.
Tranmore - 12:35
I get started with Guily Billy, he was a very impressive winner of a point to point at Tinahely, I was left a little disappointed with his run at Clonmel last time out. He has been well at home since that run, hopefully we can see an improved effort here.
Tramore - 13:40
Next up is Brampton Belle. She had just the one run for us so far but is a lot better than what she showed at Tipperary in May. She has been working and schooling well at home, so I am looking forward to getting her going and hopefully seeing an improved performance having learnt a bit from her first start.
Tramore - 14:45
We then come to the Beginners Chase with An Taibhse, a rated chase, and she comes here having had two starts over fences at Sligo and Gowran. Fingers crossed she can run a nice race in this company.
Echoes Of Family
Tramore - 15:15
Echoes Of Family for the Harty’s is my final ride on the card. She was very well placed to finish second to Envoi Allen last time out at Down Royal and pick up a nice bit of prize money. Back into handicap company here she is a lovely ride to pick up, has been consistent on recent runs and hopefully can put in another fine effort here.
Warwick - 14:00
Sadly, I can’t be in two places at once and with Tramore rescheduled due to the weather earlier in the week I can’t be at Warwick to ride Kapard in the listed chase. She is a lovely mare who ran a great race at Navan last time out to beat Mt Leinster’s of Willie’s and she should run a big race in England.
BBC World Sport Star of the Year
Finally, I just wanted to take the chance to say thank you for all of the very kind messages regarding my nomination for BBC World Sport Star Of The Year for 2021. It’s absolutely unbelievable to be nominated alongside some amazing names. I was delighted to hear the news and will have to frame the list of us all up for the award!
