23 Mar 2018 Race Previews

We have two runners in the Listed Novice Hurdle over 2 miles. Nessun Dorma (Paul) has had a nice break since winning at Kilbeggan and Gowran and is in great order. However, this testing ground would be a big worry. On the other hand Draconien (David Mullins) will like this ground. He was a bit disappointing last time but, if he can put that run behind him, he would have a decent chance here.

We also run two in the 2 mile Grade 2 Chase. Great Field (Jody McGarvey) is having his first run back but is fit and well. The race conditions suit but we would prefer to see nicer ground for him. American Tom (Paul) will handle the ground but is not well treated by the race conditions.

Augustin (Paul) goes for the 3 mile handicap chase. He won nicely at Clonmel last time and will love this ground and trip. This is his first run in a handicap chase and hopefully he will be competitive off his mark.

Rio Vivas (Patrick) runs in the bumper. He was a little disappointing at Thurles last time but he has improved at home since. He will like this ground and should be competitive.
