Montalbano (Paul) makes his chasing debut in the 2m 2f beginners chase. He won over hurdles at the Punchestown Festival and that form gives him a first rate chance here. He jumps well at home and, provided he handles this testing ground, he should go close.
Karalee (Paul) has her first run back in the 2 mile mares’ hurdle. The race conditions suit and she will handle the ground. Barra has race fitness on her side and she could be the main danger.
Real Steel (Paul) has his first run for us in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He was a little unlucky when just touched off over hurdles in France and that experience will be invaluable here. He is a very nice sort and he should be fine on this ground. We are hoping for a big run.
