Leopardstown 7th March

Fly Smart (Paul) has his first run for us in the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. Due to various setbacks he hasn’t been on a racecourse since finishing second in a hurdle race in France in October 2018. He could be a bit rusty after such a long lay-off and this might be a big ask on his first run for so long. However, he’s ready to start back now and hopefully he will run respectably.

Royal Illusion (Paul) goes for the mares maiden hurdle over 2m 4f. She jumped very well until she got stuck in the mud over 2 miles at Naas last time. Today’s better ground will be much more to her liking and the longer trip will also be to her advantage. This could be a nice opportunity.

Klassy Kay (Paul) runs in the 2m 4f mares handicap hurdle. She has a lot of weight for a small horse having gone up 11lbs for winning at Punchestown last time. However, she is improving and will love the trip and ground. She should be very competitive.

Livelovelaugh (Paul) runs in the 2m 5f handicap chase. He ran a great race when third over this course and distance last month and will like this ground. He must have a big chance.

Dark Raven (Patrick) makes his debut in the 4yo winners bumper. He is a nice type who shows us a fair bit at home. We wouldn’t normally run a maiden in a winners race but he needs the experience if he is to be a force in the big bumper at Fairyhouse at Easter.
