Ford lining up beach party

Richard Ford has his first runners in Ireland when saddling two at Laytown beach.

  • Go To

The Lancashire trainer travels with a pair of seasoned all-weather performers to tackle the unique event on the strand.

Seamster, twice a winner at Lingfield this summer, looks to have a leading chance in the opening Tote Mobile Betting Handicap under Colin Keane.

My Son Max, who was successful last time out at Beverley, also appears a live contender in the Barry Matthews Appreciation Handicap, with Katie Walsh taking the mount in the amateur contest.

"We've got a couple of sporting owners and they want to give it a try," said Ford.

"They are both slightly better in than they are on their all-weather marks at home, but they can't run in their normal headgear because of the rules.

"The surface is a lot different, but we've given them a canter down on our local beach and done what we can.

"They seem in good form and we have two very capable jockeys booked, so we'll give it our best shot."
