We have two runners in the 2m 3f novice hurdle. Uradel (Danny Mullins) had a little setback after winning a maiden at Listowel last June but is fine now. He has plenty of jumping experience but could find it tough here on his first run back. Contingency (David Mullins) was third in a handicap hurdle at Leopardstown a few weeks ago but didn’t jump well enough in that company. This should be an easier task and she should go well.
Makitorix (David Mullins) runs in the Grade 2 Novice Hurdle over 2 miles. He’s not well in at these weights but he is improving and needs plenty of practice.
American Tom (David Mullins) goes for the Grade 3 Chase over 2 miles. He was second at Thurles over 2m 4f last time and we think he will be a lot better suited by this trip. He will like this track and will handle the ground.
Carefully Selected (Patrick) runs in the winners bumper. He won very well at Leopardstown over Christmas but that was over 2m 4f. It is not ideal dropping back to 2 miles here but he is definitely in with a chance.
