One Jockey And Trainer To Follow At Naas

Trainer To Follow - Joseph O'Brien

Joseph O'Brien is a trainer that will be on of the most well know of that on show tomorrow at Naas and he is having a wonderful season so far over the jumps gaining winners in both the UK and Ireland frequently.

With the on going equine flu problem in Britain racing is restricted to just Naas and O'Brien fields some smart rides and could come away with some nice wins at a period of doom and gloom for the industry.

His first big chance comes in the EMS Copiers Rated Novice Hurdle where he fields Konitho in what is his first run for new owner J P McManus in the green and gold hoops.

This potential superstar has only run once in Ireland since coming over from France where he showed little ability in his three runs.

However, in his first run over course and distance for O'Brien he landed a maiden hurdle out of 24 runners and looked a very impressive type and if building off that can back up his odds of 6/4 to land the spoils.

He also has Band of Outlaws in that contest who is the second favourite and could feature under a good ride from the trainers cousin JJ Slevin.

The young trainer has another two possible chances in the back end of the card with second favourite in the 15:40 Handicap hurdle with Leave Your Mark who again is owned by McManus and going into Handicap company for the first time has a decent chance.

O'Brien also has the favourite in the bumper race which finished off the card and he looks to have a great chance at 5/4 after finishing second on his debut behind a useful Mullins horse and should go on to win.

The Irish trainer only has the four runners tomorrow but could easily walk away with all three of them winning.

Jockey To Follow - Mark Walsh

The jockey to look at tomorrow with some nice rides on board some talented horses is Mark Walsh. This experienced rider over the jumps has five rides across the eight race card and he is on some favourites.

In the first race of the day he saddles City Island for trainer Martin Brassil who looks to be one of the picks of the day going off as odds on favourite and looking for his fourth win in his last five races.

Next he has the 8/1 shot Drop The Anchor who has clear place claims for owner J P McManus but does need to find some of his old form to finish in the top three.

Again he gets the leg up on one of the many McManus owned horses in the third race of the day but this Charles Byrnes trained horse will have to improve under a strong ride to be involved.

His best chance of the day comes in the Novice Hurdle with Konitho for trainer Joseph O'Brien who was recently bought by J P McManus and looks to be a decent talent that could go to the festival if impressing at Naas.

His last ride of the day comes in the O'Driscoll O'Neill Handicap Chase and he is on board Scoir Mear who again has a decent each way chance in a big field.

The accomplished jockey is in fine form at the moment running at a 23 percent strike rate for the last 14 days and he will be looking to add to this on Saturday.
