5 Apr 2019 Race Previews

Pont Aven (Danny) runs in the 3 mile Rated Novice Hurdle. He was unlucky when second at Clonmel in February and might gain compensation here. This is a big step up in trip but we think it will be a big help to him.

Defy Du Mee (Danny) goes for the first division of the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He is a straightforward jumper and should improve from his run at Naas last month.

Southern Nights (Danny) runs in the second division. He ran well over this trip at Punchestown in February and has improved in his work since. He will love this ground and should run a big race.

Epswell (Danny) has his first run in a handicap in the 2m 4f handicap hurdle. He has had a good break and we are expecting him to go well today.

Patrick comes back from Aintree to ride Drury in the mares’ bumper. She has a real good jumping pedigree and is a half-sister to Champ. She is a lovely sort and is fit and ready to run. Hopefully she will get off the mark at first time of asking.
