What a great sportsperson and a fantastic ambassador for Ireland:
Looking forward to the fight and I'm going to head out with the family for a few pints and a bit to eat. She's 1/8 in the betting which seems a little short but she really is fantastic and hopefully, she'll get Gold by the time the Olympics are done.
On the racing front, I've two bets for today although the one at Ripon is a very short price - here's what Timeform have to say on each:
3.20 Naas - Boston Rocker
€35,000 filly by Acclamation who made all in a 6f Fairyhouse maiden in
June and best effort yet when ½-length second to Parliament Square in
listed heat at Tipperary since (Blue Bullet fourth).
2.15 - Ripon - Royal Aspiration
Runner-up in couple of 5f maidens in June and latest 2½ lengths tenth of
22 in the Super Sprint at Newbury represented much-improved form given
the quality of that field. Obvious claims here.
