Punchestown 13th February

We run two in the rated novice chase over 2 miles. Ciel De Neige (Mark Walsh) won over 2m 4f at Navan last time but we don’t think the drop back in trip today will be too much of an inconvenience. He enjoys jumping and will like the ground. He has to give weight away all round but he’s progressive and should be a big player here. Grand Bornand (Paul) can be forgiven for pulling up at Leopardstown last time. He bulldozed the first fence but jumped well enough after that. We will watch with interest to see how he gets on today.

Stones And Roses (Paul) goes for the 3m 4f handicap chase. He is improving and this race looks made for him. The combination of three and a half miles and soft ground will really play to his strengths. We are expecting a really big run.

Deploy The Getaway (Paul) runs in the 2 mile listed novice hurdle. He jumps well and ran away with a maiden hurdle at Down Royal last month. This is a big step up in class but he might still be improving and is entitled to take his chance.

James’s Gate (Patrick) makes his debut in the bumper. He is a lovely big type to go jumping with later on. We haven’t got him very long but his work at home has been excellent. There are a few unknown quantities in opposition but we are really looking forward to seeing how he gets on. Hopefully he will continue the fantastic recent run of our bumper horses.
