Angostura and Lazy Bones go in the maiden hurdle. Angostura has form in point to points so comes here with race fitness as he tries his hand at running under rules, Jack rides. Lazy Bones ran really well on debut and we claim off him with Carl millar taking 7lbs off.
We have some top notch mares going in the Apples Jade mares hurdle; Brighterdaysahead and Mel Monroe. Brighterdaysahead looks to be the real deal as she has beaten all before her to date. Jack Kennedy rides and looks to continue the fine run. Mel Monroe may play second fiddle here but she is a smart filly in her own right with Sam Ewing booked to ride.
The Boyne hurdle is a favourite of ours where we have SIRE DU BERLAIS, BEACON EDGE, DELTA WORK and GALVIN all going forward. Sire was a sensation last year and looks to get the ball rolling here with Mark in the saddle. Beacon Edge ran very well the last day and has race fitness on his side along with Jack Kennedy. Delta Work also gets the ball rolling on his Grand National dream here with Donagh Meyler in the saddle. Finally Galvin and Sam look to do the same with Cheltenham the ultimate goal.
For the Ten Up we have FAVORI DE CHAMPDOU and AMERICAN MIKE. Favori might not be the biggest fan of the ground on offer here and has Sam Ewing in the saddle. American Mike looks to keep up his good form and missed Dublin to go here instead. Jack rides.
SO DES FLOS is our only representative in the handicap chase. He is top weight and we won’t be claiming off him. He is well ahead on rating here and Jack has been booked to ride.
LOUGH OWEL is our final runner of the day and he should be well treated by this track. He is a big galloping horse who has run well on two occasions now and will have Harry Swan in the saddle claiming 5lbs.
