IT’s a busy day at Naas as we open the day with 2 runners in the Grade 3 Juvenile Hurdle. PACINI has first time cheekpieces which will help him and Sam Ewing is booked to ride. WODHOOH is a non runner.

A big field maiden hurdle follows where we have RAINBOW TRAIL. He was a nice winner of his bumper but lost his way a little the last day. He should be able to get a bit more cover here and this looks wide open with Sam Ewing in the saddle.

In the Listed novices handicap chase we have COQOLINO. He was well back in Naas when finishing 4th the last day but goes off a nice weight here with Jody McGarvey in the saddle.

For the Grade 3 Newlands chase we have ASH TREE MEADOW and EPSON DU HOUX. This will be Ash Tree’s first start since winning in Down Royal, he has had a bit if a break and comes her fresh and will have Sam in the saddle while Jack is suspended. Epson Du Houx is another who will come here fresh with Jordan Gainford in the saddle.

In the handicap hurdle over 1m7f we have GREY DIAMOND. This horse has been a little disappointing to but probably needs to fall further in the weights. We claim off him with Danny Gilligan.

For the race where everyone tries to finish 4th we have 5 in the Pertemps qualifier. We won’t be able to qualify them all here but hopefully one or 2 can. MAXXUM was a showstopper in Leopardstown during the DRF. Carl Millar keeps the ride and claims 7lbs off the top weight. STUZZIKINI might be lacking fitness for this but could sneak in as he always runs a good race, Jordan rides. CLEATUS POOLAW looks our stand out in this with Danny Gilligan claiming 5. WILL DO is now a non runner and finally THE TIDE TURNS needs to up his game and will have Jake Coen in the saddle claiming 5.

Finally in the bumper we have WINGMEN who has a first time hood. He was a brilliant winner of his bumper the last day and will have Harry Swan in the saddle.
