Is That Love backed up his Sligo Claiming win last week by winning the Fairyhouse Racing From Home Handicap under our apprentice Cian McRedmond, making it 4 wins in the last 9 weeks for the Es Que Love gelding for owners Mark Devlin, Gary Devlin & Joseph McCrory..
Pushed along by Cian just over 2 furlongs out, Is That Love responded to pressure to lead at the furlong pole & kept on well despite jinking to beat the Martin Hassett-trained Majestic Matriarch by 2.5 lengths.
Ado stated afterwards, “He had a little wind problem last year and we got it sorted & that has made a big difference for him. That’s his fourth win in the past couple of months between the all-weather surface and the grass. We have him entered up in Roscommon on Monday and again in another claimer in Tipperary on Tuesday and he’ll definitely run in one of those. He’ll be up in grade after this but we’ll keep rattling on with him”
