    Iwas just wondering after the guineas why Mc Donagh didn’t ride Dimenticata, and my brother informed me that Lady O Reilly has jocked off Mc Donagh because he is too hard on her horses. Is this true guys ???<br>There was another horse later on in her colours who was ridden by a 7 lb claimer, so there must be some truth in the rumour.

    I think that Chris Hayes has a retainer to ride for Lady O’Reilly.

    Chris Hayes was announced as her retained rider at the start of the flat season.  Apparently, she was unhappy that McDonogh rode another of Prendergasts in a two year old maiden last backened when he was title chasing instead of one of hers as he was her retained jockey at the time. May prove to be to McDonogh’s advantage in any case.

    So it had nothing at all to him been too hard on the horses, just a general falling out. Funny I never noticed anything out of ordinary until he had no ride in the guineas, thought Prendergast was been nice to Hayes and giving him some rides. Cheers guys;)

    Colinf hit the nail on the head, she didnt like mc donagh riding another of prendergasts instead of her’s so she said she wanted a jock who’d ride all of her horses no matter what so Christy got the job.

    Irony maybe Mc Donagh might have got dimenticata home, just an assumption.

    It’s only a matter of time before Declan moves to England.

    Given that Hayes was unable to draw his claim, theoretically so.
