Sharps Choice runs in the 2m 2f maiden hurdle.He would probably have won at Punchestown last time but for unseating his rider at the last. We are quite optimistic that he will make amends today. Patrick is the declared jockey but this was a clerical error. Our intention is that Ruby will ride. We will be requesting a change of jockey but unfortunately there is no mechanism to decide on a change of rider until an hour and a half before the first race.
Ben Button (Ruby) has his first run for us in the handicap hurdle over 2m 6f. This trip will suit and while he has been off the track for a long time we are expecting him to give a very good account of himself.
Blixt (Patrick) goes for the mares’ bumper over 2m 1f. She was a bit unlucky when second at Clonmel a month ago but that experience will have brought her on. She must have a real good chance here.
