Zenon (Paul) has his first run for us and makes his hurdling debut in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He is a nice type who we bought off the flat in England. He has had a few training problems but is ready to start off and the nice ground here should be ideal.
We have four in the 2 mile handicap hurdle. Janidil (Mark Walsh) won a maiden hurdle at Tipperary last month and has previous handicap experience in France. He looks nicely weighted and will like the track and ground. He has a lot going for him. La Sorelita (Paul) finished fourth in a handicap hurdle at Killarney in May and will be wearing a hood for the first time here. She has plenty of experience over hurdles and this ground will suit. Ideally, she might need a longer trip. Allez Dance (Rachael Blackmore) could be well handicapped. We are looking forward to seeing her over fences but we decided to go for this valuable hurdle for her first run back. She will handle the ground and has each-way prospects. Cool Colannade (Brian Hayes) has been chasing at a high level and is fit as a flea for this return to hurdles. He has a nice light weight but might prefer drier ground.
Real Steel (Paul) has his first run of the season in the 2m 3f conditions chase. He is suited by these race conditions but might need a longer trip. Going right-handed will suit him.
