8 Dec 2017 Race Previews

Scarpeta (Paul) has his first run for us in the 4yo maiden hurdle over 2 miles. He comes off the flat and is a nice type to go jumping with. He jumps well and we will have to see how he handles the testing ground in what appears to be a hot race.

We have two runners in the 2m 4f beginners chase. Invitation Only (Paul) fell at Punchestown last month but will love this ground. If he puts in a clear round of jumping today he could be hard to beat. Cap D’Aubois (Danny Mullins) disappointed last time and we are just hoping for better today.

We also have two runners in the 2m 4f handicap chase. Acapella Bougeois (Paul) fell here a couple of weeks ago but is a course and distance winner. He is in good form at home but does have to give weight away all round here. He has huge potential and hopefully he will show that today. Polidam (Danny Mullins) was disappointing on his first run for us but could be well handicapped. We are expecting a much better run here.
