Drury (Paul) makes her hurdling debut in the maiden hurdle over 2m 4f. She won a bumper in fine style at Cork in August and will handle this ground. She jumps well but won’t find this easy against several more experienced rivals. That said, we are expecting a good run.
We have three runners in the 3 mile handicap hurdle. Eight And Bob (Paul) has been running very consistently on the flat this summer and will like this trip and ground. Don’t Hesitate (Brian Hayes) is having her first run in a handicap. She was a bit disappointing on her first run back at Galway and will need to show improvement to figure here. Suinda (David) showed considerable improvement when fourth over this trip at Listowel last time and has a live each-way chance here.
Yorkhill (Paul) goes for the 2m 4f conditions chase. He was disappointing when pulling up in the Kerry National three weeks ago but is a course winner here and will handle the ground.
