Dolciano Dici won’t run in the claiming hurdle.
Lamarckise (Paul) has her first run for us in the mares maiden hurdle over 2m 5f. She is a nice type who was third in a hurdle in France. She will love this soft ground and we are expecting a very good run.
Five O’clock (Paul) goes for the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He was second on his first run for us in a maiden hurdle at Tramore last month. That was over 2m 5f and the drop back to 2 miles today is not ideal but the ground should make it a test of stamina. The horse that beat him at Tramore didn’t frank the form next time but we are hoping that our fellow will be good enough to get off the mark here.
Miss Punch (Jody Townend) runs in the bumper. She ran very well to finish fourth behind Aione on her debut at Punchestown and she should improve on that here. Hopefully she will go close.
