Sir Ector still a force to be reckoned with
Sir Ector rolled back the years with victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Handicap Hurdle at Sligo.

Darkest Flyer shines brightest at Sligo
Darkest Flyer regained the winning thread with a gritty performance in the Hop House 13 Lager Rated Novice Hurdle at Sligo. Noel Meade's charge was turned over at odds-on at Ballinrobe last month but that didn't stop punters piling in again and he was sent off the 11-10 favourite. Sean Flanagan was
Churchill on International mission at York after Goodwood wash-out

Upped-in-class Alluringly set Yorkshire Oaks test

Actress to represent Ballydoyle in Lowther Stakes at York
Aidan O'Brien will rely upon Actress as he seeks a first triumph in the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York on Thursday. There is further Irish interest in the form of the Ken Condon-trained Mamba Noire.
