Clare/Limerick Racing News 

Chris Hayes rode his first winner of 2022 when the Henry de Bromhead-trained Annexation finished with a flourish to land the eight-furlong handicap at Dundalk on Friday night.

Owned by the South Ros Racing Syndicate, the 5/2 favourite justified strong market support when getting the better of the John McConnell-trained 50/1 outsider Godhead by half a length.

Hayes commented:

“I’d say that trip is probably ideal. There are a couple of options for the rest of this winter campaign. I’ll have a chat with Henry, I think there could be a nice little pot up here before it’s over.”

Donie McInerney was among the winners at Fairyhouse the following afternoon where he easily captured the two and a half-mile maiden hurdle on the Barry Connell-trained L’yser. A few jumping errors didn’t appear to hinder the 3/1 shot in any way as he raced clear to score by 12 lengths from the Paul Gilligan-trained Uknowcarty.
