Navan 5th December

Manitopark (Paul) has her first run for us and makes her hurdling debut in 4yo maiden hurdle over 2 miles. She won five out of six Anglo Arab races in France and is a good jumper. She should handle the ground and with her mares allowance we are looking forward to seeing her out.

Eden Flight (Paul) runs in division one of the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He was disappointing last season and probably won’t come into his own until he goes chasing. The drop back in trip today might be a help but he is probably best watched here.

Frere Tuck (Paul) has his first run for us in division two of the 2m 4f maiden hurdle. He is a lovely big individual who should make a good chaser. He won an AQPS race in France and has schooled well. He is worth keeping an eye on for the future.

We run seven in the 3 mile handicap hurdle. Class Conti (Danny) has a lot of weight in this testing ground. Chasing is more his game and he could find it tough to figure at the business end her. Low Sun (David) will find this difficult on his return after a long break. Sayo (Paul) will handle the ground and trip and has a live chance. Bon Retour (Adam Short) could be nicely handicapped but her last couple of runs were very disappointing. If back to her best she could reward each-way followers. Fan De Blues (Brian Hayes) looks well handicapped on his chase form and is a versatile sort who handles any ground or trip. Maze Runner (Conor McNamara) ran very well on the flat last time after a long absence. He jumps well and has the benefit of his rider’s useful 5lb claim. Lady Breffni (Rachael Blackmore) is having her first run for us. She is 5lbs out of the handicap but that is not too much of a worry in a long distance handicap on testing ground. She has an each-way chance.

The Big Getaway (Paul) makes his chasing debut in the 2m 4f beginners chase. He was third in the Ballymore Hurdle at Cheltenham and has schooled well in preparation for this. He will like this ground and trip and should acquit himself well here.

Kilcruit (Patrick) runs in the bumper. He ran very well when second first time out at Clonmel for Tony Mullins. Tony rated him highly and thought a test of stamina would suit him. We will have to see how he gets on today but he will probably go jumping sooner rather than later.
