5 Oct 2018 Race Previews

We have three runners in the 3 mile handicap hurdle. Easy Gold (Paul) disappointed on soft ground at Listowel but ran very well on better ground at Bellewstown previously. He has first time cheekpieces here which should help. Hey Little Boy (Danny) reverts to hurdles after a few runs on the flat. He needs this trip and has a nice racing weight. Steel Wave (Robbie Colgan) will be suited by the ground but is 3lbs out of the handicap. The light weight will suit but this trip will stretch his stamina.

Ballycasey (Paul) goes for the grade 2 chase over 2m 4f. He loves this track and the ground will suit. However, he may find a few of these too good for him and we will be delighted if he gets some place money.

Miss Sapphire (Danny) runs in the 3m 1f novice chase. This trip will suit and she seems nicely in at the weights. We are hoping she will go close.

Voix du Reve (Paul) makes his chasing debut in 2m 2f beginners chase. He has been a great servant over hurdles and his brave jumping attitude will be a big asset here.
