Thurles 23rd February

Instit (Paul) runs in the 2m 5f Listed Mares Novice Chase. She beat her stable companion Pont Aval easily over a similar trip at Fairyhouse two weeks ago but was previously beaten by today’s rival Tellmesomethinggirl over 2m 4f at Naas. It will be hard to reverse that form but we think our mare has improved and she will appreciate this longer trip. A first-time hood today should help her settle.

Sir Argus (Paul) goes for the 2m 7f maiden hurdle. He didn’t jump fluently when beaten by Haxo over 2m 4f at Punchestown last month. We have done a lot of schooling with him since and if he jumps better today could be hard to beat.

West End Victory makes her debut in the mares bumper. She will be now ridden by Jody Townend instead of Patrick. She has a lovely pedigree but is more a summer hurdling type than a bumper horse. Hopefully she will run well.
