Dolciano Dici (Paul) runs in the 2m 5f beginners chase. He had a nice run at Navan last time and should come on a lot from that outing. However, we will be happy if he gets into money here today.
We have two runners in the 2m 2f maiden hurdle. Defy De Mee (Paul) is a fine type but is really more a chaser in the making. We expect him to improve from his previous runs but he probably wants a longer trip. Diamond Hill (Ruby) could be our best chance of a winner today. She was unlucky at Galway last time and this ground will suit her more than most.
Eclat Des Mottes (Ruby) goes for the 2m 4f novice hurdle. He surprised us a little when winning his maiden at Downpatrick but will need to show significant improvement against these more experienced rivals.
Miss Shoe City (Patrick) runs in the bumper. She was only fourth over 2m 4f at Thurles last time and coming back in trip here won’t be a help. We will be pleased if she finishes in the first three.
