5 Aug 2018 Race Previews

We run three in the 2m 6f conditions chase. All three ran in Plate on Wednesday and they seem to have come out the race well. That was Alelchi Inois (David) first run for a year and he should improve from it. He won this race two years ago but needs to reproduce that form if he is to repeat the performance. Haymount (Paul) made a bad mistake early in the Plate but is normally a good jumper. Saturnas (Ruby) didn’t run too badly in the Plate considering he was hampered at a vital stage.

Listen Dear (Ruby) goes for the 2m 2f handicap chase. She hasn’t run since May of last year so this is a big ask. However, she has been working well and we think she will handle the ground.

Maze Runner (Colin Keane) runs for the second time this week in the 1m 5f handicap. He ran in the 1m 4f handicap on Monday and the extra furlong today will suit. He hasn’t got a great draw but we are expecting a very good run.

Dorrells Pierji (Patrick) runs in the winners’ bumper. He won a 2m 4f bumper at Wexford in great style last time and the second that day won here yesterday. The drop back in trip shouldn’t be a problem and we are expecting him to make the most of this opportunity.
