First four-year-old winner of 2019 set for rules debut

First four-year-old winner of 2019 set for rules debut

The first four-year-old maiden winner of 2019 will appear under rules when Slip Road takes to the track at Limerick on Saturday afternoon.

The grey son of Shantou got off the mark in a messy conclusion to the slowly run 2m 4f four-year-old contest at Oldtown in February, when getting the better of Warren Ewing’s Bold Assassin, a horse that was subsequently bought by Henry de Bromhead for £150,000 at the Cheltenham sales, by a short-head.
 
Himself a €95,000 purchase as an unraced three-year-old at the Land Rover sale, Pat Doyle’s charge was immediately targeted at Saturday’s four-year-old bumper following his Oldtown success, with connections pointing to this race as his likely next target in the immediate aftermath of the race.
 
Carrying the colours of Dai Walters, who enjoyed Cheltenham Festival success during the week with William Money in the Coral Cup on Wednesday, it is Evan Dwan, who was aboard at Oldtown, that once again gets the leg up for the two-mile bumper.
 
Slip Road will face 11 rivals at the Munster venue including the JP McManus-owned Top Moon, who having been narrowly beaten in the first four-year-old bumper of the year at Naas in January, then went on to finish third in a Listed contest at Punchestown on his first start over hurdles. That being the race won by Borris House maiden winner Sinoria.
