'Holidays' can give Wachman day in the sun

Damien McElroy

AFTER heavy showers at Fairyhouse, a swift return to drying conditions should leave the ground riding near-perfect at the Meath venue tonight when the David Wachman-Wayne Lordan alliance could capture the honours by sharing a double.

Noel O'Callaghan's American-bred import School Holidays has progressed for Wachman since running on a decent surface and her fourth in the Naas event won by Alsalwa gives her every chance of opening her account now in the seven-furlong maiden.

At the other end of the Jackpot, the Tipperary-based handler also avails of Cork-born Lordan's services as High Magic, which Wachman jointly owns, attempts to reverse recent placings with his Roscommon conqueror Lynott.

In between, David Marnane and Colm O'Donoghue could have the answer to a tricky seven-furlong handicap with Elusive Art.

Mujaazef's prospects of defying top weight in the Ballybin Handicap were amply highlighted at Haydock on Saturday when Bewitched, which beat the Dubawi gelding in receipt of 2lb at Naas, won at Listed level for the in-form Charles O'Brien outfit.
