It’s a busy day at Naas as we send 9 horses forward for their afternoon card. The card opens with a juvenile hurdle where we have BY YOUR SIDE. This horse has been super consistent without getting his head in front. It would be grea to see him put in another top performance with Jordan Gainford in the saddle.

GALLYHILL goes for the Grade B chase over 2m4f. He is another super consistent horse who ran very well over 2 miles the last day and makes a quick return to the track. There is a big pot in this horse and it would be great for connections to see him go well, Sam Ewing rides.

For the Grade 3 Newlands chase we have BATTLEOVERDOYEN who goes back to 2 miles for the first time since Punchestown last season. The drop in class should be a big help but this looks a hot race but should be a good day out for connections. Jordan Gainford rides.

In the Grade 2 novice hurdle we have FOUND A FIFTY who looks a smart horse in the making. There are plenty of gears under the hood and this looks a relatively weak race for a Grade 2, Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.

There is a very big field for the maiden hurdle just under 2 miles. THE MEDIATOR is returning to the track after a break and he looked like a nice horse based of his last run and will have Jordan Gainford in the saddle. VALSORPRESA gets the covers taken off him today. He is a full brother to the much missed Presenting Percy for the same connections and hopefully he can provide to be as good as his brother. Denis O’Regan rides.

FORTUNEDEFORTUNATA was a bit disappointing the last day so he is taking a step back in class which should help. He looks to be in the middle of the pack on ratings and can hopefully be useful here with Denis booked to ride.

Rounding up the day we have CALDWELL POTTER and STELLAR STORY in the bumper. Caldwell Potter had issues the last day which explained why he ran badly. We think he is better than that and we have Jamie Codd booked to ride. Stellar Story looks to back up his win last time out here with Harry Swan booked to ride.
