Voix Des Tiep (Paul) runs in the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He went close behind Small Farm at Limerick over Christmas and will improve from that run. This ground and trip will suit and he should and he should be very much involved.
We have six runners in the Galmoy Hurdle over 3 miles. Bapaume (Paul) The race conditions are not particularly in his favour but he will like the ground and the trip should be okay. Coquin Mans (Ruby) is suited by the race conditions and he will like this trip and ground. Bleu Berry (Brian Hayes) faces a tough assignment against this opposition. Killultagh Vic (David) will appreciate this longer trip and the softer ground. Shaneshill (Danny) might find this trip and soft ground beyond him today. Limini (Rachael Blackmore) has been disappointing lately but she is very well suited by these race conditions. The ground and trip are also in her favour.
We run eight in the Thyestes handicap chase over 3m 1f. Pleasant Company (David) didn’t enjoy this race last year but he needs to get out while we have some soft ground. Invitation Only (Ruby) should show significant improvement over this trip and we are expecting a big run. Pairofbrowneyes (Barry Geraghty) is a course winner but needs to improve a lot from his last run to be competitive here. Up For Review (Paul) has good form over this track and has his chance over this trip. Some Neck (Richie Deegan) likes this track and won at Punchestown last time. However, he faces tougher opposition today. Isleofhopendreams (Danny) will like the ground and runs well for Danny. He should go very well here. Polidam (Katie O’Farrell) was disappointing last time and might find this trip too long. Bellow Mome (Brian Hayes) has a nice light weight but has been off the track for a long time.
We have two in the 2 mile beginners chase. Cilaos Emery (Ruby) is making his chasing debut but jumps well at home. He will love this trip and ground. Duc Des Genievres (Paul) has good form and the benefit of a recent run. He has every chance here.
Blue Sari (Patrick) makes his debut in the bumper. He is a nice type and has a good pedigree. He is fit and well and we are hoping for decent performance.
