Mcswynes won’t be kept at Bay
Donegal-trained Mcswynes Bay has become something of a standing dish at Downpatrick having won there in July and then finishing second in his last two runs over the track.
Trained by Ray McGlinchey, he could well score his first win over fences when running in the Kerry Foods Beginners Chase at the County Down course today and ridden by Paddy Flood, a course specialist, he is worth following despite being first reserve.
That should change after declaration and Mcswynes Bay, who ran a cracker last time out at Downpatrick when second over hurdles to Tarkarni, looks the part.
Jim Lambe runs Auenschutze and he will have a chance, while Mayday Frontier trained by Pat Flynn, is also in the frame.
In the first race, the Tayto Maiden Hurdle, Ruby Walsh, the all-conquering champion, should score on Wee Giant while Breeze with Ease may land the spoils for Lambe in the Premier Bakeries Handicap Hurdle.
