9 Dec 2017 Race Previews

Low Sun (Paul) runs in the 2 mile rated novice hurdle.He won his maiden at Bellewstown during the summer so today’s ground has to be a bit of a worry. However, he is in good form and has a lovely weight here.

Getabird (Paul) makes his hurdling debut in the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He has won a point to point so his jumping shouldn’t be a concern. On his best form he should be good enough to get off the mark over hurdles here.

We run two in the John Durkan Memorial Chase over 2m 4f. Djakadam (Paul) has won the last two runnings of this race and will be suited by the ground. Sizing John beat him in Punchestown but hopefully we can turn the tables today over this trip. With a bit of luck Shaneshill (Patrick) might get a share of the place money.

Saturnas (Paul) makes his chasing debut in the 2 mile beginners chase. His best hurling form would give him a great chance but this is a new discipline against more experienced rivals.

Hollowgraphic (Patrick) runs in the bumper. He was second here last April in the Goffs Land Rover bumper and that form should be good enough here. We are hoping for the best but this would not be his preferred ground.
