5 Oct 2018 Race Previews

Micro Manage (Rachael Blackmore) runs in the 1m 1f maiden. He was very slowly out of stalls at the Curragh on his debut but he has plenty of practice since. The trip will suit and the rain that’s forecast will be a big help.

Wicklow Brave (Paul) goes for the grade 3 hurdle over 2 miles. He must have an outstanding chance of continuing his winning sequence. The danger appears to be Arctic Fire who is in the same ownership.

We run three in the grade 3 novice hurdle over 2 miles. Dorrells Pierji (Rachael Blackmore) is a good jumper and won well over 2m 4f at Listowel but might find this trip a bit sharp. Easy Game (Danny) was beaten over 2m 4f on heavy ground last time but will be better suited by this trip and ground. Quick Grabim (Paul) will be well suited by this trip and ground. The likely fast pace here will also suit and we are expecting a very big run.

We have two runners in the 2m 4f novice chase. Robin Des Foret (Paul) has a lot going for him here. He will like the ground, trip and track and should be very much involved. Camelia De Cotte (David) might lack experience for a race like this but her brave style of running will be an advantage on this track.

Royal Rendezvous (Patrick) goes for the winners bumper. He was very impressive at Downpatrick last time and this track will suit his style of running. He looks to hold a strong chance.
