5 Nov 2017 Race Previews

Gustavus Vassa (Declan McDonogh) runs in the Naas November Handicap over 1m 6f. He was disappointing on his first run for us in the Irish Cesarewitch at Navan last month but he was very free then and failed to settle. We think this shorter trip will suit better and hopefully this ground won’t prove too testing.

We have two runners in the listed race over 1m 4f. Lagostovegas (Declan McDonogh) ran a great race when third in the English Cesarewitch at Newmarket where Laws Of Spin (Chris Hayes) finished well behind. This is a big drop back in trip which might suit Laws Of Spin better but the ground might be more in the mare’s favour.
