Nina Carberry, one of Ireland's leading amateur riders, could have her first runner as a trainer at Gowran Park on Saturday with Peak Raider.

Carberry is one of several from her family involved in the sport and Peak Raider used to be trained by her legendary father, Tommy, who rode Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National winners.

The 28-year-old won the 2011 Irish Grand National on Organisedconfusion, trained by her uncle, Arthur Moore, and has been victorious at the Cheltenham Festival four times.
