Jetski Out For The Season

Jetski will not race again for the rest of the season. The 2014 Champion hurdle winner has suffered an injury. NAVAN (Saturday, September 26) JUMP racing returns to Navan on Saturday as the popular Proudstown track plays host to a seven-race National Hunt card that begins at 1.50. The star performer in action is Snow Falcon who runs in the Albany Hurdle (3.30). Noel Meade’s charge was a close-up fifth to Windsor Park in the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last March and makes his first start of the new season under Ger Fox who is deputising for the injured Paul Carberry. The Meath Farm Machinery Handicap Chase (4.40) is fiercely-competitive with 11 horses set to face the starter and plenty of punters will be hoping that Barry Geraghty can carry the familiar JP McManus colours to victory on Elegenat Statesman who is trained by Henry De Bromhead. The going at Navan on Saturday is currently good. CURRAGH (Sunday, September 27) RYAN MOORE makes his return to Ireland when riding for Aidan O’Brien at the Curragh on Sunday, which is sure to boost the attendance at the home of Irish Flat racing. Moore, who returned this week after a serious neck injury, has three mounts for the legendary trainer. The Englishman is an eye-taking booking aboard Beacon Rock in the Juddmonte Beresford Stakes (3.55). Beacon Rock won at the Curragh in late August and now steps up markedly in class, taking on True Solitaire, who ran a blinder in a Group 3 at Leopardstown on Champions Weekend. True Solitaire’s trainer, Dermot Weld, supplies perhaps the bet of the day for many in Silwana in the Listed Loughbrown Stakes (5.35). This filly routed her rivals in a handicap on that very day at Leopardstown and is now rated 110. She meets another smart mare in Toe The Line. Moore partners How High The Moon in the Group 3 C.L. & M.F. Weld Park Stakes (2.50) for Ballydoyle. Aidan O’Brien has two other runners in Coolmore and King Of Magic, with ten going to post in a cracking contest. The Joe McGrath Handicap (3.25) sees last year’s winner, Prince Connoisseur, take his chance for local handler Johnny Feane. He tackles 13 foes. The eight-race Flat card at the Curragh starts at 1.50 and the going is good to yielding (round course) and good to yielding, yielding in places on the straight course.
