We run three in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. Fenta Des Obeaux (Ruby) was unlucky to fall at the first over this track a couple of weeks ago. She came out of that race well and has the ability to get into the shake-up here. She will wear a hood today and we will employ different riding tactics. Andalusa (Paul) ran a great race at Leopardstown over Christmas and with a bit of improvement should go close here. Farid (Mark Walsh) ran too free on his debut at Fairyhouse last month so we will change tactics today and see what he can do.
Elfile (Paul) has her first run for us in the mares maiden hurdle over 2m 4f. She had very good form in France and will stay this trip. It looks like a tough race but we are hoping for a decent run.
Fasola Tido (Patrick) goes for the mares bumper. She was very green when second on her debut at Fairyhouse but with normal improvement she should make amends today. She is in good form and will handle this ground.
