Westerner Lady out to sparkle again as she goes for seven up

Westerner Lady: winning streak came to an end at Cork this month
1 of 1

Westerner Lady will bid to extend a winning sequence stretching back to October 2015 when she faces four rivals in the Grade 3 novice chase (2.40) at Cork on Sunday.

Her winning run consists of three victories over hurdles followed by three more over fences, the most recent of which came in a Grade 3 event over today's 2m4f trip at Tipperary last month when she had Deans Road, a rival again at Cork, 15 lengths behind in second.

Trainer Willie Mullins said: "Westerner Lady is facing quite a tough task in what looks a very competitive race. But she's very fit following her summer and early autumn campaign. She's a course winner over hurdles and we're hoping for a good run."

The Mouse Morris-trained Alpha Des Obeaux, easily the best in the line-up over hurdles, got off the mark over fences at the second attempt when scoring at Thurles last month.

Jetstream Jack, who won well over a longer trip on his chasing debut at Tipperary last month, represents Gordon Elliott, who said: "He's in good form but the good ground is a bit of a concern. Hopefully it won't dry out any more."

Elliott's Blood Crazed Tiger attempt to make it three from three over hurdles in the 3m Listed novice (1.30). The five-year-old was a course-and-distance winner on his most recent start last month and Elliott said: "He'll love the ground and is in very good form. We know he likes the track and the trip, so we're looking forward to a big run."

Mullins and Ruby Walsh are represented by Screaming Rose. "She's racing over the trip for the first time but that isn't really a concern. She'll like the ground but it looks a tough task for her," Mullins said.

Charles Byrnes is represented by three-time hurdles winner Black Warrior.

"He's in good form. We were going to give him a break but decided to let him take his chance with the ground remaining good. He's got every chance," Byrnes said.
