Bello Conti (Ruby) has his first run for the stable in the 4YO maiden hurdle over 2 miles. He was due to run at the cancelled meeting at Clonmel on Thursday and unfortunately the conditions of this race do not suit him as well. He doesn’t get a maiden allowance here so he could find it tough. However, he will handle the ground and his French hurdle experience should stand to him.
Asthuria (Ruby) is another having her first run for us and she goes for the 2m 4f mares maiden hurdle. She too has previous hurling experience in France and she will love this heavy ground. It is a god race but she should run well.
Black Hercules (Ruby) goes for the beginners chase over 2m 4f. Jumping shouldn’t be a problem as he has won a point to point and he should handle the ground. His lack of experience compared to some of his rivals is the only concern.
Avenir D’Une Vie (Patrick) runs in the bumper. He was very disappointing when beaten a long way in fourth on his debut at Punchestown three weeks ago. He should strip fitter this time and hopefully that will make a difference.
