David Egan – Racing League Rides (Thursday 26th August)

David Egan

The William Hill sponsored Racing League continues this evening at Lingfield, as we focus on jockey, David Egan’s three rides. Egan rides for Team Ireland, who currently sit tenth in the table, going into this evening’s fixture. We take a look at David’s trio of rides below, assess their chances and see if he can lift Team Ireland back up the table, with some good results.



Six career wins came in the opening nine starts, including a five-timer back in 2019, but has failed to find the winners enclosure since, despite some strong performances here and there. Two runs this season have brought a fifth at Bellewstown (5f, good) on seasonal debut, before a third last time out at Windsor (5f, good to firm), when just 0.75 lengths behind winner, Autumn Flight on the second run for Charlie Cox. Goes in as narrow favourite here, and likely to improve further still. Tongue-tie returns and looks to have a big run in him.

TALBOT – 6:10pm

Only victory, came here on debut back in June of 2020, when 1.75 lengths clear of the useful Jojo Rabbit, but has found it tough to replicate that since. A second at Ascot (6f, good to soft) in May shows he has more to offer, as does the third at Sandown (7f, good) In June, when 2.25 lengths behind Silent Film. Has a bit of backing on the markets, but looks a place selection at best.

Five runs in Ireland so far, steadily improving with each race, culminating in successive seconds at Ballinrobe (1m 1f, good) last month and Curragh (1m 2f, yielding), when half a length behind Golden Twilight. May find issue with this track, while a wide draw isn’t ideal neither, but if capable of continuing the improvement, could be worthy of each-way attention this evening.
