Kolumbus (Paul) runs in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He was a close third at Ballinrobe last time and will have come on for that run. He won a bumper here so we know he will handle the track. He will like the ground and should go well.

Koshari (Paul) reverts to hurdles in the 2m 3f conditions hurdle. He jumped disappointingly in the Galway Plate last time and we think he is a better hurdler than a chaser. The trip and ground will suit and this could be an opportunity.

Aramon (Paul) has his first run for us in the 2m 3f maiden hurdle. He has a penalty for winning on the flat but he has been jumping and working well at home. This trip should be okay for him and he will handle the ground. We’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t get off the mark over hurdles here.

Sharps Choice (Niall Kelly) goes for the 2m 3f beginners chase. He was a good third over 2m 6f here last month so we are hoping that this trip won’t prove too short. He is a good jumper and won a maiden hurdle around this track. He will love the ground and must have a real good chance.

Presenting Leah (Patrick) makes her racecourse debut in the bumper. She was second in a point to point and gallops well at home. She is a half-sister to Bellshill and is fit and should be involved at the business today.
