17 Nov 2018 Race Previews

We have two runners in the Grade 2 Novice Chase over 2 miles. Cadmium (Ruby) won over this track last time and will like this trip and ground. Voix du Reve is a very smart jumper and is improving all the time. Both should run very well.

We have three runners in the Grabel Mares Listed Hurdle over 2m 2f. Good Thyne Tara (Paul) will be fine over this trip and we think there is still more improvement to come from her. Stormy Ireland (Ruby) is well treated by these conditions but it is a tough ask for her on her first run back. Ria D’etel (David) is really on a fact finding mission. She has had lots of training problems and this race will give us an idea as to whether she will continue over hurdles or switch to fences.

Rebel Og (Patrick) goes for the winners bumper. She surprised us by winning so well at Downpatrick on her first start as she didn’t look that good in her work at home. A production of the Downpatrick run would give her a great chance here.

Alelchi Inois will be ridden by Stephanie Searle in the Challenge Race. He will love this ground and the trip and should give a good account of himself. Stephanie is a key member of staff in Closutton and we wish her the best of luck.
