The Lir Jet misses out on Dubai invite

The Lir Jet has just missed out on getting an invitation for the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan next Saturday.

His trainer Brendan Walsh said, "It's very disappointing that The Lir Jet has not gained an invitation to run in the Al Quoz Sprint. Unfortunately the race this year is massively competitive and he just hasn't quite made it in with a rating of 108. With these world class international races, horses have to be invited by the racing authorities. I've never had him in better form and I thought he would go into the race with a competitive chance. Unfortunately we're now going to have to rethink and it looks like he'll go for the Grade 2 Shakertown at Keeneland on the 9th April."
