Rachael Blackmore’s Friday At Gowran Park3 min read
BetVictor Brand Ambassador, Rachael Blackmore goes into the weekend in great form. She has already tasted success aboard Raya Time for Henry de Bromhead at Clonmel today and has four rides to look forward to on Friday at Gowran Park.
Once again, Rachael has shared her thoughts ahead of what should be an action-packed day of racing.
2.05 at Gowran Park | 2m2f Joe Bollard Memorial Maiden Hurdle (4yo)
I start the day by taking the ride on Stormy Judge (2.05). Last seen in a Punchestown bumper back in April, we’re hoping he’s freshened up for a first run over hurdles. Fingers crossed he gets off to a good start over obstacles.
3.15 at Gowran Park | 2m Watch Irish Racing On Racing TV Handicap Hurdle (4yo+ 80-95)
Next up I am aboard Blackyellowred (3.15) who ran well when finishing second to the impressive Aa Bee See at Roscommon on Monday. This looks like a competitive race, but he seems well and we’re hoping he is there or thereabouts again today.
4.25 at Gowran Park | 2m4f Kilkenny River Court Hotel Handicap Hurdle (4yo+)
I take the ride again on Whenurgoodurgood (4.25) for Nigel Slevin, having finished a credible 6th in Saturday’s run at Navan over minimum trip. He steps up to 2m4f here and I’d expect that to suit, so hopefully he’s not too far away.
5.00 at Gowran Park | 2m4f Race Displays Handicap Hurdle (4yo+ 80-102)
I’m looking forward to sitting on Villa Moura (5.00) for Henry de Bromhead. She is my final ride of the day. She fell last time out at Wexford back in June when she appeared to be going well and was a good 3rd before that at Downpatrick. She is in good form and I am looking forward to her running another big race.
