Stratum (Paul) goes for the 2 mile conditions hurdle. He was well beaten in this race last year but we expect him to makes amends this time around. The trip is short of his best but he should outclass today’s rivals.
We have two in the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. Elite Charboniere (Brian Hayes) has been disappointing and we are just hoping that he can show some improvement on this ground. Castle North (Paul) ran a great race when second over 2m 5f here a few weeks ago. He has improved at home since and must have a great each-way chance.
Eoline Jolie (Paul) runs in the 2m 4f handicap hurdle. She has been very disappointing but on this ground and with her light weight she might run better today.
Wicklow Brave (Paul) makes his debut over fences in the beginners chase over 2m 1f. He jumps very well at home and if he adapts to this discipline he must have a great chance. He is in very good form.
We run two in the 2m 7f handicap chase. Pylonthepressure (Paul) was running well when he fell at Tramore last time and we have been very happy with him at home since. Ask Susan (Danny) is improving and has a a nice weight.
Blazing Emily (Patrick) makes her racecourse debut in the bumper. She is a real nice type out of Blazing Tempo. She will like this ground and might get the mark at first time of asking but it is hard to know what she is up against.
