First Race: 5.30
Fresh from landing her first Classic success at the Curragh on Sunday when Alpha Centauri won the Irish 1,000 Guineas, Jessica Harrington will be bidding to advertise her versatility yet again, by teeing up A Sizing Network for McHale Mayo National Handicap Chase [8.00] at Ballinrobe.
A Sizing Network didn’t get home over 3m2f last time at Killarney but is sure to be suited by stepping back in trip in the feature race at the County Mayo track.
Standing in Harrington’s way is trainer John Ryan, responsible for Kilcarry Bridge, a grand 11-year-old bidding to record back-to-back successes in the race.
Noel Meade, who was among the winners at the track on Monday, runs Net D’Ecosse, the Gigginstown-owned gelding coming into the valuable contest off the back of an impressive victory at Kilbeggan.
Racing at Ballinrobe begins at 5.30pm and the ground at the venue is good.
