We have three runners in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. Vent D’automne (Danny) has point to point experience and won a bumper in Ballinrobe last May. He will like this ground but might prefer a longer trip. Voix Des Tiep (David) was second over 2m 4f here last time and he would also prefer further. Queens Boulevard (Paul) wears a hood for the first time as she was a little free last time. She likes soft ground and hopefully a change of tactics here will bring about improvement.
Dolciano Dici (Paul) runs in the 2m 2f handicap chase. He needs to improve a lot to trouble these but he will have the ground he likes.
We have three in the 2m 4f beginners chase. Burrows Saint (Paul) needs this trip and will enjoy the softer ground. He should go very close. Allblak Des Places (Danny) needs soft ground but will have to improve hugely to figure here. Catwells (David) came to us from France with a nice reputation but has had his training problems. He needs to get his season started and we decided to run here as he will get his preferred ground.
Billaway (Billy Gleeson) goes for the hunters chase over 3m 1f. He ran way better last time than his finishing position would suggest and will improve a lot from that run. However, most of these rivals are more experienced.
