Panther Soul (Paul) has his first run for us and makes his hurdling debut in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He is fit and well and is a good jumper. However, we are concerned that this ground may not be to his liking.
We have two in the 2 mile novice hurdle. Aramon (Paul) won his maiden hurdle nicely at Kilbeggan and has come for that run. We think a lot of him and we are hoping he will win again here. Eglantine Du Seuil (David) was very green when winning at Sligo and this is a step up for her today. She will need to improve if she is to be involved.
Lareena (Niall Kelly) goes for the 2m 4f handicap hurdle. She will handle the ground and the trip will suit. She has each-way prospects.
We have three in the 2m 4f novice chase. Robin Des Foret (David) might not like the ground and will have to jump better than he did last time. Cap D’Aubois (Paul) was very good in Killarney and has improved a lot over fences. He jumps well and will like the ground. Minella Beau (Danny) will like the track and will go on the ground.
We run two in the winners’ bumper. Queens Boulevard (Billy Gleeson) will love this ground but needs to improve on her Sligo win if she is to be competitive here. Sancta Simona (Patrick) looked very good when winning at Kilbeggan and hopefully this ground won’t be too tacky for her. She is very smart and we will be disappointed if she doesn’t win again today.
