Johnny’s selections for our charity bet with TheTote.com for the Injured Jockey’s fund are below, but what else is he looking out for?
“I’d be very sweet on a horse that Pat Fahy trains, will absolutely love the ground, Pat of course is a Galway man and he’d love a win here with Stormy Bell at 8.40.
Ace of Diamonds in the 8.10 trained by Dermot Weld too, we didn’t mention Dermot today but he’s had a fairly non-descript start to the week and will be hoping for a lot better today!”
