We have two in the 4yo maiden hurdle over 2 miles. Farid (Mark Walsh) has been disappointing but we are hoping he might leave that form behind today. However, he might need more experience before we see the best of him. Runrized (Paul) had some good flat form in France and jumps well. We are looking forward to seeing how he gets on here.
Wicklow Brave (Ruby) goes for the Limestone Lad Hurdle over 2 miles. The race conditions suit but this trip could be a bit sharp. Hopefully he will get some nice place money.
Ballyward (Ruby) runs in the 3 mile novice chase. He was a close second in a beginners chase at Punchestown last time but this is a step up in class. However, he will appreciate this trip and will gain some valuable experience.
Roll Again (Patrick) runs in the bumper over 2m 3f. His two runs so far have been disappointing but the ground will suit and we will try different tactics today.
