Mystic Theatre (Ruby) goes for the Grade 3 Mares Novice Hurdle over 2 miles. She was very impressive over two and a half miles at Gowran last time and we don’t think the drop back in trip here will inconvenience her. While she has to give weight away all round she should be up the task. She is improving all the time and we are expecting her to continue her winning ways here.
We have two in the Grade 2 Hurdle over 2 miles. We are hoping Melon (Ruby) can build on last season and the conditions of today’s race suit. He should gain some valuable experience but it is his first run back and he should improve for the race. Coquin Mans (Paul) is fit from a summer campaign and has only been beaten one in his six runs and that was by Jezki. We expect him to give Melon a stern examination.
