Girl in a jacket

A new feature for the website. Tracey will bring us poetry...


If you'd like to hear some racing talk
I'll start with the 2.05 at Cork
a winning start could be in our reach
if we have a bet on Coral Beach.
Already placed in seven races
she could put the others through their paces
to make a case for it is not hard
and she's from the Aidan O'Brien yard.
But if there's a battle to the line
I think we can rule out Rain or Shine
there's only one other, in a word
a 2-year-old filly named Hummingbird.
In the 2.35 I'm not looking for
Cosmic Horizon could be a star
already a winner and dropping in class
if she can manage the weight she'll be difficult to pass
and from the same stable Facethepuckout
he is showing ability there is no doubt
with 8st 13 and easier task
to see him winning is not a hard ask.
The 3.05 is an interesting race
with no mountain to climb it could go to North Face
a 3-year-old colt by Declaration of War
a winner at Navan and there could be more.
His nearest rival, or so it seems
is the consistent filly Ship of Dreams
a chance on the weights and sure to try
it wouldn't be a surprise to see her sailing by
leaving the others looking on
wondering if the ship has gone.
