Carefully Selected (Paul) runs in the novice chase over 2m 4f. He did well to win his beginners chase at first time of asking at Fairyhouse in November. That was over a furlong longer than today’s trip and this shorter distance is not really ideal. He missed Leopardstown at Christmas because the ground was too firm but today’s soft ground should be ideal. This is a hot looking race but he should go close.
Blackbow (Paul) goes for the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He had the race at his mercy at Navan last time only to fall at the last. Granted a clear round today he should be capable of making amends.
