Buaiteoir's adventure

NEWMARKET trainer Amy Weaver believes she might have spotted a a good opportunity for Buaiteoir in the Neptune Claiming Race at Laytown tomorrow.

The gelding has had three starts since joining Weaver and she said: "It's a bit of an adventure. One of the owners is Irish, and the horse had been running in sellers and claimers in the UK.

"It's difficult to find races and he's rated higher on the all-weather than on the turf, and at Laytown horses run on their turf rating.

"I've actually taken him down to the beach at Holkham in Norfolk with some other horses, to get him used to it as well as just for a fun day out."

The talented Gary Carroll has been booked for the ride, and she said: "Gary has ridden a couple of winners for me at Ayr and Ffos Las, and hopefully the horse will run well."
