Cooper second at Worcester

Cooper second at Worcester

Bryan Cooper ©Healy Racing Photos Bryan Cooper had to settle for second place on Guiding Stars on his first ride at Worcester. The leading Irish rider suffered a major blow in the summer after losing the job as number one rider to Gigginstown House Stud, for whom he won the Cheltenham Gold Cup with Don Cossack in 2016. Though Cooper insists he will continue to be based on home soil, he may well be seen in the UK more often, with opportunities in Ireland having been thin on the ground. And he went close to making a winning start on Guiding Stars, but the Harry Whittington-trained four-year-old found odds-on shot Hatcher too good in the bumper at Worcester. Cooper sent Guiding Stars (7-1) into the lead just under two furlongs out but the move was covered by Harry Skelton on Hatcher, trained by his brother Dan. The 8-13 favourite asserted in the closing stages and went on to score by a length and a quarter. The two protagonists pulled nine lengths clear of Shadow’s Girl in third.

Preview galway 19th Sep

Airlie Beach attempts to sign off with a victory in the Ardilaun Hotel Oyster Stakes , the feature race at Galway on Tuesday. The Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old is in foal to Mount Nelson and the top-class hurdler is having what is expected to be her last start in the Listed contest, having broke her duck on the level with a maiden victory at Tramore. Red Stars drops down from Group Three company and heads the list of dangers along with Pearl Of The West and Pocketfullofdreams. The latter represents Aidan O’Brien who has strong claims with Hunting Horn in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, which kicks things off at 2.25. There was plenty to like about his debut fourth at the Curragh last month and Ballydoyle runners usually improve markedly for their first outing. O’Brien saddles Bound in the concluding Sean Cleary Memorial Fillies Maiden as the three-year-old steps up to a mile and a half in an attempt to get off the mark. Himmah has filled the runner-up berth on his last four starts and bids to go one better in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Fillies Maiden. Kevin Prendargast’s filly only missed out by three-quarters of a length at Roscommon last time out and is likely to be popular with the punters again. Sister Blandina has also been threatening to score of late and is out to gain a deserved victory in the Donnellys Of Barna Rated Race. Johnny Murtagh’s charge faces just four rivals, one of which is Ontheiflist who ran out an easy winner at Roscommon on his latest outing and another big run could be on the cards. Queeluz completed a double with ease here when last seen in June and returns in search of a hat-trick in the James P. Cunningham Electrical Handicap, while High Expectations bids to bounce back in the Galway Apprentice Handicap having missed out on a three-timer by a neck at Navan earlier in the month.

Lad follows-up on Sligo success

Dundrum Lad and Donal McInerney pictured on their way to victory ©Healy Racing Photos By Donal Murphy Dundrum Lad got up close home to beat Oskar High in the Anglo Printers 1890 624 624 Handicap Hurdle. The Mags Mullins trained seven-year-old, who is a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Backspin, was successful on his most recent outing at Sligo last month. Sent off at 11/2 this afternoon he was settled behind the leaders by Donal McInerney. He was ridden in pursuit of the leader Oskar High from two out, getting to the front inside the final 100 yards, before going on to score by a length.< Oskar High (8/1) looked set to score after the last, but he couldn't repel the winner, and had to settle for second under Jack Kennedy for Norman Lee. The favourite Babanango (5s this morning and from 7/2 to 3/s on-course) was another three and a quarter lengths back in third for Ruby Walsh and Tony Martin. Mullins said afterwards: "I'm delighted with him and he's coming along nicely and jumped super. It's lovely to have a winner for Mr McManus and Frank (Berry, McManus' racing manager) has been a great help. "Donie gave him a lovely ride and that's his first ride for me – 7lbs was a help, he gave him a lovely ride and it's lovely to have a chap like him. "I don't think he wants bottomless ground and I thought Listowel would a bit heavy for him so we said we'd wait – we picked it right and it doesn't always go that way! "I'll talk to Frank (Berry) and see where we go next but I'm delighted with the horse, charmed!" Additional reporting by Thomas Weekes
