Nina Carberry, the heroine of Dancing With The Stars, will be honored at the Fairyhouse on Sunday.
Not only was Nina a brilliant jockey, she’s also been proving she can jipe for the past few weeks in front of national cameras!
The Listed Cork Stakes is the feature at the Mallow venue, live on Racing TV and I have a few selections there as well as Fairyhouse.
3.12 Cork: Twilight Spinners
I don’t think Power Under Me can win this as his last bad run was blamed on good ground and Mooniesta has never won longer than six furlongs.
Twilight Spinner seems versatile in terms of ground and, crucially, is unremarkable in its form for a meter.
Her British form puts her right in the game and she beat all Bar Art Power in her only start for Joseph O’Brien.
3.30 Fairy House: Bronn
Bronn isn’t much smaller at the betting here than he was running in a Grade One two starts ago.
He disappointed then but last time out he ran blindly towards Navan where it looked like he wasn’t in love with the heavy ground.
Seems overpriced here in a really open race.
4.05 Fairy House: Dartington
I like Flame Bearer but his penalty will make it a bit difficult and Dartington seems to be valuable in every way, especially when the oddly used I Don’t Get It takes his chance.
The selection has plenty of pace and defied concerns about bottomless ground at Navan in March and this tougher test sure looks to fit.
4.57 cork: Varna Gold
I’m amazed this horse is running 12-1 with a rating of 57 after being competitive over hurdles of 116 last time out.
It looks like he’ll score sooner or later on the flat and was sent off for a much shorter time than the last time he ran on the flat.
