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. The Association of Irish Racecourse Veterinary Surgeons (AIRCVS)

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Win: SUPPOSEDTOBE

Next Best: Whyzzat

SUPPOSEDTOBE may well have paid the penalty for attempting to chase down a Willie Mullins filly when third on his hurdling debut at Killarney and, without a rival of that potential calibre in the line-up, he gets the vote on this occasion. Whyzzat escaped the carnage when jumping well to score at Roscommon earlier in the month and he is capable of being in the mix along with Albert Camus, who was a useful handicapper on the Flat when trained in England. Lunar Power and Realist are also worthy of respect.

Best Turned Out

Down Royal Racecourse is pleased to sponsor the Best Turned Out prize for today’s races.

The Farrier Service is provided at each meeting by: Mr Lee Mooney, 6 Annadorn Road, Downpatrick, Co. Down, BT30 8JU – 07872947240

Thank You

Down Royal Racecourse would like to thank the Northern Ireland On Course Bookmakers Association including Danny Boy Bookmaker, Franco Hughes Bookmaker, McCartanbet.com, Pat O’Hare Bookmaker, Pinnacle Sports Bookmakers, Sean Graham Bookmaker and Tommy Donnelly Bookmaker for their generous sponsorship of today’s meeting.

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Win: MIGHTY MEGGSIE Next Best: A Contender MIGHTY MEGGSIE was unlucky to be headed in the final strides on her latest outing. That was an encouraging performance and she gets the nod to make Paul Townend’s trip worthwhile for his sole ride of the day. She Is A Contender was too keen for her own good on stable debut but considering she beat a useful hurdler when winning a point-to-point last November, she can get involved if learning to settle. Aubretia has been edging towards that elusive victory over timber and she completes the shortlist.

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Win: FEEL DES MOTTES Next Best: Brideswell Lad FEEL DES MOTTES won with any amount in hand at Clonmel last time and Liz Doyle’s charge could defy an 8lb higher mark now he’s regained the winning thread. Brideswell Lad was an emphatic winner of a maiden hurdle at Tramore and could prove a tough nut to crack despite dropping in trip, while Reverse Polarity is a fellow maiden hurdle winner who could be well treated on her handicap bow. At the other end of the handicap, Ricky Langford is respected as he went close when last tried over timber.

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. The Association of Irish Racecourse Veterinary Surgeons (AIRCVS)

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Win: SON OF HYPNOS

Next Best: Skippin Court

SON OF HYPNOS caught the eye when finishing fifth in a maiden event at Cork on his latest start over hurdles, travelling well to lead three out before tiring in the closing stages. The four-year-old looks set to benefit from the drop in trip and is taken to get off the mark over obstacles. Skippin Court is also respected after producing respectable efforts on all three of his starts to date, while Decimal Day has stronger form than most of his rivals and may also feature.

Race 5

Next Best: Go Another One

Win: TULLYBEG

Go Another One scored easily enough at Cork by 10 lengths to suggest he could follow up here. Sweet Home Chicago fell over fences when last seen but could be better back over hurdles and won’t be far away, but preference is for TULLYBEG. Denise Foster’s gelding hasn’t been at his best over fences, but returns to the scene of an easy course and distance success in May.

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Next Best: Final Orders

Win: STEPS MATCH

STEPS MATCH has been a model of consistency since switching from point-to-points to hurdles back in June. A winner at Tipperary in early July and placed on his most recent start at Sligo, the son of Court Cave can regain the winning thread at a track that may suit. Final Orders may give him most to think about despite only ever winning at 2m over timber, as he was runner-up at Ballinrobe recently. The veteran Ocean Glandore isn’t without a chance either, while Finding Joy must also be considered.

DOWN ROYAL FORM GUIDE

Hi Stranger has the form to win this after an easy success at Limerick last month, but she does have to give weight to all of her rivals. ROCCO BAY caught they eye when fifth at Killarney despite being hampered, less than three lengths off the winner, and looks sure to improve for that experience. Fanoir may prove best of the rest in this field.
