We head North to Downpatrick this evening.

In the maiden hurdle BIG STAGE bids to get off the mark over hurdles on his 6th attempt. He has been placed on every start over flights so far and deserves to get his head in front today. Sam Ewing rides.

LUCKY STORM moves into handicap company for the first time today. She ran well last time out to finish 3rd on her seasonal reappearance and should go close today under Jordan Gainford.

We saddle two runners in the beginners chase. ERIGMOOR ran well over course and distance last time out to finish third and looks capable of finishing in the frame here again today under Sam Ewing. GAYE WINNIE is having her first start over fences. She won her maiden hurdle at the track and provided she jumps well she should show a good account of herself. Jordan Gainford rides.

WINE AN DINE is having his second start for us in the maiden hunters chase. He didn’t quite see out the trip in the Ladies Cup at Punchestown but jumped well over the banks course. He wears first time blinkers today and Rob James takes the ride.

Our final runner is BATTLEOVERDOYEN in the 3m5f hunter chase. He was unfortune to unseat Josh Halford in Killarney last time out but the pair reunite here again today and he is not without a chance provided the partnership stay in tact.
