Horse In Focus - Back In Focus



  • Our horse in focus this week is the hugely promising Back In Focus, who ran out the impressive winner of the Grade 2 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Haydock on Saturday. It was made even more impressive the fact that this was the 6yo's first run over hurdles and his first run in the UK.

Horse In Focus - Realt Dubh



  • Realt Dubh put in a great performance to win the Grade 1 Irish Arkle at Leopardstown on Sunday. He put in a brilliant display of jumping and held on to beat Noble Prince by a shd.  

Horse In Focus - Minella Class



  • Minella Class was an impressive winner of the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown last Saturday. He beat his nearest rival, Megastar, by 7L's in the 2m 110yds contest on heavy ground. 

Horse In Focus - Magnanimity



  • Magnanimity put in a great performance to win the Grade 2 Tote Pick Six Killiney Novice Chase at Leopardstown on Sunday. He was given a great ride by Davy Russell to beat the well fancied Jessies Dream by just under a length.

Horse In Focus - Pandorama



  • Pandorama put in a great performance to win the Grade 1 Lexus Chase at Leopardstown over 3m, at Christmas. He was unlucky in his last race in the Hennessy at Newbury, but Paul Carberry looked after him that day and pulled him up.

Horse In Focus - Oscars Well



  • Oscars Well was a very impressive winner of the Grade 1 Navan Novice Hurdle over 2m4f in Navan at the weekend.  The 5yo who is trained by Jessica Harrington, settled nicely and was produced by Robbie Power two furlongs out and easily took it up to coast in for an easy victory.

Horse In Focus - Mossey Joe


Mossey Joe

  • Mossey Joe put in an impressive performance to run away with the Grade 3 O'Connell Group Cork Stayers Novice Hurdle at Cork at the weekend. The 7yo son of Moscow Society pulled hard and Andrew Leigh couldn't get him to settle but it made no difference as he was much too good for his rivals and won as he liked.

Horse In Focus - Jack The Bus


Jack The Bus

  • Jack The Bus won the Troytown Handicap Chase over 3m at Navan on Sunday. He was held out the back patiently before gradually making his way through the field to join the leader at the second last, before taking it up at the last and staying on well to beat the talented Glenquest by almost a length.

Horse In Focus - Shinrock Paddy


Shinrock Paddy

  • Shinrock Paddy won on his first start of the season in the Tipper Road Hurdle at Naas on Saturday over 2m 4f, beating the well regarded Son Amix by over a length, while giving him 20lb. It was an impressive performance and could be the start of a great season.

Horse In Focus - The Shepherd King


The Shepherd King

  • The Shepherd King won on his first start over hurdles at Galway on Sunday and would be worth keeping an eye on over the next few months. He was up against some well fancied runners and the race should produce plenty of winners in the near future.
