Three way battle expected in the Horseware Ireland Handicap
A three way battle between Word For Word, Indian Scout and Waterloo Sunrise is expected in the Horseware Ireland Handicap at Dundalk in Ireland on Friday, March 16, 2012. The winning horse will bag a cash prize of €4,830.
The going will be Standard over the 1 mile, 2 furlong race and 150 yards race, which is scheduled to start at 8:30 GMT. The event has attracted 11 entries and their names are: Word For Word, Indian Scout, Waterloo Sunrise, Tide Runner, Dancing On Turf, Dart
Queen, Days Ahead, Try Freedom, Surf´s Up, Hi Kort Lady and Our Pearl.
Out of these runners, Indian Scout has been given pretty decent odds by the bookmakers, as he is in great form at the moment. He has participated in 10 races until now, winning one of them and also securing a runner up spot once.
The four-year-old gelding got off to a struggling start to his career, winning no race out of nine straight attempts. However, he finally managed to break the shackles at Dundalk last month, where he outclassed the rest of the participants to end up on top
of the table.
Eoin Doyle’s trainee was not the favourite to win that event, but surprised one and all with his solid performance. He kept on chasing the race leaders for a long time and finally pressed hard at the end to gain lead over his rivals. This performance would
have given him immense confidence and the punters will also be encouraged to place maximum number of bets on him.
Today’s favourite runner will be partnered by W. M. Lordan, who seems to be quite a good rider.
On the other hand, Word For Word is also expected to deliver a solid result in the race, despite the fact that he has been out of touch recently. He has participated in 22 races, winning just one.
Waterloo Sunrise, trained by S. M. Duffy, has not won any race until now, but has a decent chance of breaking the shackles today. He will be ridden by G. F. Carroll, who is relatively new to the sport.
The rest of the runners do not really seem to have a good chance of winning today, as the top three favourites are in spectacular form.
