Riot on track for Cork on Friday

Riot has been left in the Mallow Premier Handicap at Cork on Friday at today’s forfeit stage.

His trainer Johnny Murtagh said today,

”The plan is to run Riot on Friday in Cork. He did his final bit of fast work on Friday and everything went well. He’ll be scoped tomorrow and take a blood just to make sure everything is in order but I’m happy with him and he’s ready to run. He’s up to 7 furlongs on Friday and then we’ll look at Royal Ascot whether that’s in the Wokingham over 6 furlongs or Buckingham Palace over 7 furlongs. Friday’s race will tell us which direction we’re going.” 

Declarations for Cork are due on Wednesday. Any member who wishes to attend as an official owners can enter the ticket ballot by emailing Laurie on
