Welcome A special hello to Owners and Spectators who we are delighted to be welcoming back to Down Royal Racecourse on this the first step on the road back to whatever ‘normal’ will become. Things are a little different but we are hopeful you will have a great day and we are grateful to you for supporting our return by being here today! We successfully delivered race meetings behind closed doors since July 2020 but thankfully our focus can once again shift to delivering the Down Royal experience that racegoers, owners and Industry previously enjoyed. We have worked and continue to work with our industry colleagues, sporting authorities and government to ensure compliance with all necessary requirements to keep you and those around you safe until such times that we can return to relative normalcy. None of us could have anticipated that we would have to wait 16 months until we emerge and remobilise with spectators and owners at Down Royal; but we truly are delighted to see you again and ask that everybody work together along with our dedicated staff and stewards to ensure a safe and thoroughly enjoyable event for all. Here’s to brighter days!

Yours in Sport,

Emma Meehan

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Next Best: Western Victory

Win: Make My Heart Fly

The versatile Western Victory was third in the Mayo National last time, but perhaps more importantly, second in a Listed contest over hurdles on her penultimate start. That brings her right into calculations here, but preference is for MAKE MY HEART FLY, who was a runner-up over fences when last seen and the four-time hurdles winner is interesting dropped back in distance for this return to timber. Ava Rose is also noted dropping back in trip, while Bonarc is likely to be thereabouts.

It’s the social event of the year so of course we’ll be covering every minute of it on social media! You can get in on the action too – send us your snaps using #DownRoyal Facebook.com/downroyalracing

Next Best: Irish Poseidon

Win: Mars Harper

Irish Poseidon has made the frame the last twice, including when sent off favourite last time, while King’s Vow took a step forward when third last weekend and is interesting dropping back in trip. However, it may be best to side with MARS HARPER, who was second at Limerick most recently and was a winner of a Ballinrobe bumper when last encountering good ground. Colm Murphy’s pair of Aubretia and All Thumbs Up have the ability to get involved, while Digby offered plenty of encouragement when third on his racecourse bow and is also noted.

Next Best: Bennystiara

Win: Look Dont Touch

The majority of this field have questions marks to answer and with that being the case, recent Punchestown runner-up LOOK DONT TOUCH looks the one to focus on. He showed much more sparkle with the tongue-tie fitted last time - when he pulled clear with the winner - and should make a bold bid from the front once again. Bennystiara represents top connections and also brings recent placed form into this contest, making him a likely contender, while the once-raced Offaly Star offered promise on his debut and looks capable of stepping up.

Race 4

Next Best: Blackstair Rocco

Win: Nymphhall

It could pay to side with the obvious here, last-start scorer NYMPHHALL. John Ryan’s charge won readily over 3m1f at Kilbeggan on Monday and a 5lb penalty might not be enough to anchor her if she can reproduce that level of performance. Blackstair Rocco wasn’t disgraced on his handicap debut at the Punchestown Festival and warrants respect in this lesser event, while Ricky Langford, Balgowlah and Minella Mystics are others to note.

Next Best: Dinny’s Ginny

Win: Wake The Giant

Race 5

WAKE THE GIANT had the race at his mercy when a faller two from home over slightly shorter here two starts ago and is only 2lb higher now as he searches for compensation. He wasn’t disgraced when sent off favourite at Perth last time and looks to have leading claims. A step up in trip could suit Dinny’s Ginny, who has been outpaced over shorter off this rating the last twice. Similar applies to Dalileo, who was fourth at Roscommon earlier this month, while Railway Muice could prove well treated on his return to hurdles. Aliym and Likable Chancer are others capable of making the frame.

Next Best: Eba Baie

Race 6

Win: Place Des Vosges

PLACE DES VOSGES confirmed himself firmly on the upgrade when forging to an emphatic success over 3m at Listowel earlier this month, proving his staying power in the process. He won’t be inconvenienced by this drop back in trip and a 10lb rise may not be enough to anchor him. Ena Baie was heavily backed when a keeping-on third over 2m at Punchestown last time and is an obvious danger over a longer trip which should suit. Positive market vibes for Good Man Jim on his first start for Willie Mullins would be interesting

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Next Best: Ashroe Diamond

Win: Whispering Pines

This is seemingly a good opportunity for WHISPERING PINES to build on an encouraging debut in testing conditions at Wexford last month. Joseph O’Brien’s filly kept on well to finish third behind the well-regarded Ashroe Diamond but she doesn’t appear to be meeting anything remotely of the same calibre here and she should have too much for the likes of Mareintheair and Littel Flour who each revealed flashes of promise on their debuts at Ballinrobe and Punchestown respectively.

Horse Welfare – A Priority At every race meeting there are minimum of two specially qualified equine veterinary surgeons on duty to look after the wellbeing of all the horses racing. There is a vet in attendance at the start of each race who, follows the horses throughout the race and is quickly on hand if a casualty occurs. It is normal procedure to erect screens around any horse receiving veterinary treatment. This allows the veterinary surgeon some privacy to fully assess the horses’ injuries and race goers should not assume the worst if screens are erected around an injured horse. The Blue Cross ambulance is always present to transport the horse back to the stable yard for further treatment if necessary. A second veterinary surgeon is in attendance in the stable yard to assess and treat any horses requiring such attention post race. The horses’ welfare is always our priority.

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Next Best: Cafe Del Mar

Win: Miracle Millions

The money was down for MIRACLE MILLIONS at Ballinrobe first time out and, though he could only manage fourth, he may take some stopping on better ground with some previous experience to draw on. Cream Sparkles has also shown enough to suggest she can win a race, while The Gossiper ran better than the bare result suggested at Tipperary last time and is hard to rule out despite his penalty. Cafe Del Mar looks the most interesting of the newcomers.
