Good Thyne Tara (Paul) makes her chasing debut in the 2m 2f mares beginners chase. She has plenty of size for this discipline and has schooled well at home. She was the best of these over hurdles and won’t have any problem with this ground. This looks like an opportunity to get off the mark over fences.
Footpad (Daryl Jacob) goes for the 2m 6f conditions chase. Last season didn’t go to plan but we are happier with him this time round. He looks well in at the weights and will handle the ground. He has the stamina for this trip and should be hard to beat.
We have two runners in the 2m 7f rated novice hurdle. Allez Dance (Daryl Jacob) ran well in a 2 mile handicap at Down Royal last time and stepping up in trip here should suit. Think Positive (Paul) has been running consistently all season but needs to improve to win this.
Asterion Forlonge (Patrick) has his first run for us in the bumper. He was very impressive when winning a point to point in February last year but was injured and didn’t run last winter. He is an athletic type and we are hoping he can open his account on the racecourse today.
