We run four in the valuable 2m 6f handicap hurdle. Cap D’Aubois (Paul) might want further having won over 3 miles at Tipperary last time but the ground will be testing here after all the recent rain. He is coming to himself but has not hit top form yet and has a fair bit of weight today. Aussie Reigns (David Mullins) will have no trouble with this trip but he has missed some time and his bets form on the flat was on a firmer surface. The Crafty Butcher (Ruby) reverts to hurdles here and could still be well handicapped. He will love this ground and trip. Lagostovegas (Danny Mullins) was third in the amateur race on Monday and that form looks good now. She has a lovely light weight and will go on the ground. We think she will stay the trip and the only negative is that she is running for the third time in the space of three weeks.
Grainne’s Dream (Pat Smullen) ran well here over the same trip on Tuesday. However, she has an awful draw and will need a lot of luck in running.
True Self (Patrick) has her first run for us in the mares’ bumper. She was second in a Warwick bumper and we are told that the form of that race has worked out well. She does things nicely at home and we are very hopeful that she can add to this week’s tally.
