THE third and final instalment of this week’s action at Tattersalls Ireland was the company’s August National Hunt Sale which proved to be a rather muted affair as this auction continues to feel the effects of a reshuffled sales calendar enforced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Previously the August Sale benefitted from an intake of horses who were forced to miss intended engagements at
various high-profile store sales earlier in the summer and that cohort generally played a pivotal role at the head of the market.
