Geraghty back in business

first_imgBarry Geraghty will make his debut as retained jockey to leading owner JP McManus at Limerick on Sunday. He returns aboard the Aidan O’Brien-trained Waver, who faces eight rivals in the Mike Denver Plays Limerick Racecourse Live On The 23rd July Rated Hurdle. The five-year-old, who has won three times on the level and once over hurdles, faces a strong field including the veteran Pires and Peter Fahey’s smart mare Queen Alphabet. Geraghty then rides Getting Late for Edward O’Grady in the Handicap Hurdle, before getting the leg-up on Hash Brown in the Book Online At Beginners Chase. The latter is a Grade Three winner over hurdles and makes his debut over fences for Michael Hourigan. Hourigan said: “It’s his first run over fences, and two miles and one (furlong) might be on the sharp side for him, but we have to start somewhere. “He will probably be a bit fresh, so we’ll see what happens. “Barry has ridden a lot of winners.” Geraghty has been sidelined with a broken shinbone since March and suffered another setback after being admitted to hospital with a kidney stone earlier this week. However, he is now ready to make his comeback and is scheduled for three rides in McManus’ famous green and gold silks. center_img Press Associationlast_img
