Weekend Preview | Loughanmore

Race 1: Dennison Commercials 4yo Maiden

HANG TOUGH made an encouraging debut at The Pigeons last month, and that opening fourth-place effort should see him as the leading horse in this with previous form.

All the big yards are represented with newcomers including Donnchadh Doyle, who has certainly proven to be the man to follow in four-year-old races in the region so far this season.

Race 2: Jacksons Butcher Shop & Bakery 5&6yo Mares Maiden

Both of the  two placed finishes for SKETRICK having come around here, including on debut at Easter when running well behind Lough Derg Rose. That was a competitive race with plenty of winners emerging from it, and she can be expected to run a big race.

Perle Rose has not yet been able to recapture the promise of her opening two starts, but may improve for her reappearance at Toomebridge, whilst Save Us Avis made up late ground at Dowth Hall last month and could be one to note.

Race 3: Stonebridge Premium Feeds 5yo Geldings Maiden

THE ECHO BOY has hit the crossbar on consecutive outings, with his latest placed performance coming at The Pigeons when making his debut for the Dermot McLoughlin team. It would be no surprise to see him step up from that here.

Ask Cory was sent off as a joint-favourite for his debut, and whilst he failed to finish in testing conditions on that occasion, nicer ground at Taylorstown in the spring certainly brought about an improved performance. Slumdogmillionaire has been in good form this autumn, whilst Feagreen Native and Boru Melody are others for the shortlist.

 Race 4: Islandbawn Winner Of Two

WINGED LEADER brings winning four-year-old maiden form into this race following his success at Loughbrickland a fortnight ago, and with plenty of experience prior to that, he should be well up to making the step into winners company here.

Major Davis is the obvious danger, as he is one of just three two-time winners this season following victories at Castletown-Geoghegan and Dowth Hall, with his maiden already working out particularly well. Hi Murphy is the other horse to be feared.

 Race 5: Glenpatrick Horseboxes Open (4yo )

An ultra-competitive contest which could see the return for the 2018 Cheltenham Foxhunters favourite BURNING AMBITION. The seven-year-old won both of his outings between the flags last season and will be looking to bounce back from an eighth placing at the Festival on his return to action.

The likes of Longhouse Music, Johnny Sue are race-fit recent winners, whilst track recruit Coastal Tiep has joined Stuart Crawford from Paul Nicholls and is just a six-year-old that has to be respected.

Race 6: Move Right Therapy 6yo Maiden

BUNNINADDEN has yet to finish outside of the first four in four completed runs between the flags, including narrow defeats at both Stradbally and Inchydoney. A big run can be expected on his reappearance.

Pegase Amour has had to settle for the runner-up spot on each of his last three starts and is very close to getting his head in front, whilst Anticur can improve upon his second at Portrush.
