Betfair ambassador Rachael Blackmore provides exclusive insight on her five runners at Fairyhouse on Saturday...


Fairyhouse on Saturday

13:05 - Freddie Robdal

I ride on Freddie Robdal in the 2 mile 1 furlong handicap chase at Fairyhouse on Saturday. His last two runs have been way below his best but he seems in good order at home so we are hoping he can put in a much better performance here.

13:40 - Baldurs Gate

He was impressive when winning over an extended 3 miles in Punchestown back in November. I think the step back up in trip here should suit. He ran very well the last day behind R'evelyn Pleasure and that was over 2m 4f so hopefully he can go one better here.

14:15 - Look To The West

Look To The West runs in the Solerina mares novice hurdle. She was a really good winner of a point to point in Dromahane and won well then in Navan after a long enough absence. We were really happy with her run that day. She was very straightforward, jumped great and galloped well to the line. Hopefully she can put up another good performance here in what looks very competitive race.

14:50 - Red Glory

Red Glory runs in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He ran in Punchestown at the end of May which was his first run over hurdles. His jumping was a bit novicy that day but he has been schooling well since and with that experience under his belt, he should take a step forward here.

15:25 - Time For Tea

She runs in the restricted maiden hurdle for horses that haven't been placed first, second or third and have had three runs. She was fourth in Down Royal over Christmas and ran a lovely race that day so hopefully another run like that should put her bang up there in this contest.
