A trio of Irish trainers have runners in Britain on Wednesday.

Michael O'Callaghan sends Navassa Island across the Irish Sea to contest the Listed Irish Stallion Farms EBF Eternal Stakes over an extended six furlongs at Carlisle.

This daughter of Territories won her maiden over six furlongs at the Curragh last summer and has been placed in a couple of Listed contests and in Group 3 company since then.

Kevin Stott has been booked for the ride.

Thomas Dowling runs two raiders in Fffos Las with Sapristi attempting to defy top weight under Finley Marsh in the opening Class 6 handicap over a mile and a-quarter.

She has one victory in her locker from a Fairyhouse claimer over a year ago and has finished unplaced in three handicaps this season.

Gianh River makes his debut for Dowling in the Electrical Wholesales Swansea Classified Stakes over a mile in the first-time visor.

He has been unplaced in eight outings for his three previous trainers, and Ross Coakley gets the leg up.

John O'Donoghue is represented by Currumbin in the concluding IDM Doors Handicap over a mile.

A rating of 76 gives him a leading chance particularly as he was just beaten by a neck over an extended mile in Killarney in May and finished six lengths clear of the third.

Coakley also takes the ride on Currumbin.
