We have two runners in the Grade 2 Novice Chase over 2m 1f. Tell Us More (Bryan Cooper) has the best chance of the two on ratings but Ttebob will be hard to beat if at his best. Sambremont (Ruby) has some very good form and is certainly not out of it.
We have three in the 3 mile novice chase. On ratings Black Hercules (Ruby) looks the one and if his win in Warwick last month hasn’t taken too much out of him he should go very close. Measureofmydreams (Paul) was good when winning at Punchestown but the form of that race would leave him a little short of what it might take to win this. Pleasant Company (Danny Mullins) put in a good gutsy performance when winning at Punchestown and will love this trip. He has a small chance here.
Isleofhopendreams (Niall Kelly) is coming back from a long layoff and it is hard to see him winning with top weight. However, he is fit and well, will go on the ground and his rider’s 4lb claim will be a big advantage.
Blow By Blow (Patrick) goes for the bumper. He ran very well when a close second at Punchestown on his debut and will have learnt a lot form that experience. He should be good enough to win today.
