Queens Boulevard (Paul) makes her hurdling debut in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. We would prefer more rain for her but she jumps well enough and will gain valuable experience here.
We have three runners in the Lawlor’s of Naas Grade 1 Novice Hurdle over 2m 4f. Come To Me (Paul) won his maiden hurdle in fine style at Cork last month but will encounter different ground conditions here. Getareason (Noel Fehily) was a good second to Easy Game at Navan last month and has more experience than out other two. Tornado Flyer (Ruby) won his maiden hurdle nicely at Punchestown but lacks experience. That said, his main rivals here are similarly inexperienced so we are quietly confident.
