We have three runners in the 3 mile handicap hurdle. Ben Button (Ruby) is on a winning curve and will love this ground and trip. He went up 10lbs for his Listowel win but might have enough in him to win again. Tay Lane (Brian Hayes) has a nice weight and we are trying a longer trip with her here. Her pedigree suggests that she would like better ground. Blixt (Paul) won in Clonmel last time and will appreciate this light weight. She will like the trip and ground.
We run two in the Grade 2 Chase over 2m 4f. Ballycasey (Paul) won this race last year but the heavy ground is a major concern today. Shaneshill (Ruby) ran well in Galway after a bad mistake in the closing stages. That run gives him a real good chance here.
