Magnier looking for good return from trip to Downpatrick

Mon, Aug 27, 2012, 01:00

RACING:CURRAGH TRAINER Paul Magnier sends two mares to Downpatrick’s UK Bank Holiday fixture this afternoon and Neighbourly and Rare Symphony can both return home winners.

Neighbourly is already a winner having announced a return to form for the Magnier string at Kilbeggan on Friday, easily scoring by almost 10 lengths.

She has just a 6lb penalty for the second of today’s handicap hurdles and can continue her good form. Rare Symphony has the course winner Celtic Cailin to beat in the first handicap but could improve sufficiently on a Naas second to Clancy Strand last time.

Dundalk hosts an additional fixture this evening where the Phoenix Stakes third Lottie Dod can get off the mark in the opening maiden, sparking a good session for jockey Fran Berry.

A return to the all-weather can work for the dual course winner Go On Murt while Daisy Mountain has a shout in the first division of the 10 furlong handicap.
