Ishebayorgrey chases more success


The ultra-consistent Ishebayorgrey goes in search of his fifth win of the season as he lines-up in the Bulmers Live At Leopardstown Handicap.

The Pat Martin-trained colt has finished no worse than fourth on his last nine starts and was second to Captain Power, who reopposes now, over the course and distance last week.

There is a 5lb swing in the weights between the duo and this should give Ishebayorgrey the upper hand.

Glimmer Of Peace has been knocking on the door of late and another solid effort can be expected from her with Pat Smullen in the saddle.

Other leading contenders in the six-furlong contest are Tom Dooley, Oor Jock and Pretty Famous.

Juliette Fair ran a fine race on debut at the Curragh in June and is sure to prove popular with punters in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

The Dermot Weld-trained grey has most to fear from Ballydoyle newcomer Seventh Heaven, David Wachman's Gilded Reflection and Mick Halford's Indrahar.

Connections of Octavia, Bainne, Creggs Pipes and Peace Mission will all fancy their chances in the five-runner Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap, while Cullentry Royal, Pullman Brown, My Twinkle and Prussian Eagle look the ones to focus on in the Today FM Apprentice Handicap.

Unicorn was well-fancied on debut at Galway but ran very green and finished a never-nearer third.

With that experience under his belt the well-bred colt should prove hard to beat in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden.

The concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden is a surprisingly weak affair with the Johnny Murtagh-trained Jolyne the clear form choice.
