10 Nov 2019 Race Previews

Fast Buck (Paul) goes for the For Auction Novice Hurdle over 2 miles. He had a super summer and was second over 2m 5f at Limerick last time. This trip might be more to his liking but this very testing ground is a slight concern.

Bacardys (Paul) returns to action in the 2m 4f Lismullen Hurdle. He has the unenviable task of taking on Apple’s Jade but he should finish second at worst.

Eden Flight (Paul) has his first run for us and makes his hurdling debut in the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He is a big chasing type who won an AQPS race in France and has schooled well at home. This ground shouldn’t be a problem and he should go close.

Duc Des Genievres (Paul) makes his seasonal reappearance in the Fortria Chase over 2 miles. We are happy with him at home but he did improve with racing as his season progressed last year. He should hold his own but he has a group one penalty and this is his first run outside novice company.

Melon (Paul) goes over fences in the 2m 1f beginners chase. He is a tall and strong individual and shown an aptitude for fences at home. This ground and track will suit and we are expecting a big run.

Energumene (Patrick) makes his racecourse debut in the bumper. He won a point to point in England but it is difficult to evaluate that form. He is a chasing type and this track and ground will suit him. He had a little setback last year but is ready to start off now and should give a very good account of himself.
