Racing: Carberry on course
Monday 13 September 1999
Carberry, who underwent an operation on his spleen after collapsing with abdominal pains, still finished second with 71 winners to Ruby Walsh in the Irish jockeys' championship.
"I feel grand and I'm really looking forward to coming back," Carberry said yesterday. "I'll just try and ride as many winners as possible, but I'll certainly have a crack at the championship."
The Northern Ireland Festival of Racing at Down Royal on 5 and 6 November continues to attract top performers and Paul Nicholls yesterday confirmed that Dines, one of last season's top novice chasers, will contest the Isuzu Chase over two miles and two furlongs, which is worth pounds 20,000 and is for second-season chasers.
"Dines will accompany See More Business and I could have other runners at the meeting," Nicholls said. See More Business. his Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, runs in the pounds 100,000 Jim Nicholson Ulster Champion Chase.
