Monday Racing Preview

horseracing_rkThere is an interesting mixed card at Roscommon this evening and it begins at 4.55pm with the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden.

Michael O’Callaghan looks like he holds the key to the race with Act Of Valour and the handler has left nothing to chance by booking champion jockey Pat Smullen.

David Fitzgerald will be delighted to see the sun shining ahead of the myITdepartment.ie handicap chase as his Stonehall Jack loves fast ground. An impressive winner at Tramore two starts back, he was a good second at Kilbeggan over a trip short of his best last time out.

Noel Meade’s Thomond is also proven on good ground and he looks like providing Fitzgerald’s stable star with the biggest headache.

Fresh from sending out a double at Leopardstown on Sunday, Jessica Harrington bids to continue her strong run in the Follow Us On Facebook Mares Beginners Chase as Rock On The Moor enters the race as a very short-priced favourite. Man of the moment Robbie Power takes the ride.

The racing begins at 4.55pm and the ground is good.
