Down Royal 4th November

We have four runners in the Grade 3 Mares Novice Hurdle over 2m 1f. Champagne Problem (Pat Taaffe) won at Cork and Kilbeggan and then finished second at Gowran last time. Pat can’t use his claim here but he has been getting on well with her so far. Hopefully she will run well enough to get some valuable black type. Paul won nicely on Nikini at Listowel last time and he is happy to take the mount again here. The dam’s side of her pedigree would suggest she may not be at her best on soft ground but hopefully she will cope with the conditions today. Carrigmoorna Queen (Brian Hayes) has been running well of late and we think she’ll handle today’s ground. She has a great chance of finishing in the first four. Saylavee (Danny) is improving all the time and being by Shantou she should handle this ground. She has every chance.
