DAVID O’MEARA is already well under way to complete a seventh consecutive season with over 100 winners with 43 on the board already and over £545,000 in prize money as he moves into June with his team flying high.
The Upper Helmsley trainer clearly believes that his team are not there to stand in their boxes as he has notched up 113 winner from 1074 runners last year and his 109 winners of 2017 were acquired from 1078 runners.
O’Meara struck gold in the ultra competive Tokyo Handicap at Epsom on Saturday with the nine-year-old Watchable and he has the likes of Lord Glitters, and Suedois entering the Veteran stage but well capable of holding their own in classy company.
Summerghand could be one of his performers at the Royal meeting and there should plenty more to be heard from the likes of Mawakee, Fastman and Southern Rock.
Whether he passes his Personal best of 136 winner in 2013 remains to be seen but it won’t be for want of trying for an outfit that invariably does well with older horses bought from other trainers.
David kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about some of his main hopes for the months ahead.
