Dundalk ready for main Event
on 27 March 2018
The Horseware Eventer Riders Championship Challenge is taking place tomorrow evening and features well-known names from the eventing world who will be in action in the mile-and-a-half race

THE Horseware Eventer Riders Championship Challenge is an interesting element to Dundalk's programme as it rounds off some decent Wednesday evening fare.

Sarah Ennis, Brian Morrison, Aidan Keogh and Declan Cullen are some of the well-known names from the eventing world who will be in action in the mile-and-a-half race.

Given her background, it is not surprising to see Jessica Harrington with a horse engaged here as Jack Blue goes into battle.

Gordon Elliott is three-handed, meanwhile, with The Game Changer, Water Sprite and Hurricane Volta.

Each rider must be a paid-up member of Eventing Ireland and have competed at a certain level in the past 12 months.

They also had to raise a minimum of €2,000 towards the Eventing Ireland High Performance Programme.

Whilst that is a charity event, punters have some serious contests to get their teeth into earlier on.

Now You're Talking is going to draw a lot of attention, being as she is a 106-rated performer, when she goes in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden.

Joseph O'Brien's inmate possibly has newcomers to chiefly concern her in this sprint, with Debatable and View The Bay appealing on paper.

An hour later in the Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Maiden, Aidan O'Brien fields the Galileo colt Bond Street.

The official assessor has him perched on a mark of 87, on the evidence of five outings thus far.

He faces no easy task here, though, as Cockalorum, Harvestfortheworld and Loving A Boom have displayed plenty to date, and five first-timers also try their luck.

A welcome visitor to Ireland for the coursing at Clonmel again earlier in the year, Sir Mark Prescott sends over Elysees Palace for the Dundalk Business Club 2018 Maiden.

Declan McDonogh will take the reins on the four-year-old.
