‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ by the Scottish runner on Wednesday

Coach Keith Dalglish is based in Carluke, Scotland. It must be important and interesting that he sends one horse along the way Tipperary In Ireland on Wednesday.

Dalglish has only sent three riders to Ireland in his career. None of the three were put in but they didn’t do anything about it, he’s not going to Southern Ireland to finish the tyre.

The trip in total takes about 762 miles round trip which includes a ferry across the Irish Sea. It’s going to be an expensive exercise to hook the runner up, so they’ll want to make it pay.

5.15 Tipperary

The Coolmore Ten Sovereigns Tipperary Stakes is a listed competition involving six contestants. The horse in question is Middleham Park Misty Air, who was last seen finishing ninth at Royal Ascot.

She was only defeated by six lengths by winner Kwik Suzy but her effort is discernible. Coming from the dreaded stall that day, she had absolutely no hope of being drawn to this side of the track, so running well was pretty remarkable.

It’s interesting that Robert Coyle won this race in 2019 with Strive For Glory, so Dalgleish wouldn’t be the first British coach to land it. It’s a decent amount and a great opportunity to get a black-type horse.

Misty Ayr is arguably setting the figure standard here because she was ahead of the reopened Harmony Rose which had a slightly better draw in the 8th booth. Chris Hayes takes the ride and is a quality racer so everything looks ready for a massive ride.
