Today we head over to Thurles before the party gets started in the UK.
MYLESTOWN UPPER has his first run over fences today and this looks an open contest. His return to the track was uneventful so a switch to the bigger obstacles calls, Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride. WHAT AN OCEAN unseated early on the last day so makes a quick return to the track. Hopefully her jumping can be a bit cleaner here and she is reunited with Sam Ewing.
For the hunters chase we have HAPPY VICTORY who has been stellar in point to points to date and remains unbeaten in that sphere. Hopefully he provides to be hard to beat as he looks very promising going forward and has Harry Swan onboard claiming 5lbs.
SET POINT has his second run for us after running ok on debut. This maiden hurdle looks wide open and hopefully he can make more of an impact second time around. Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.
Nathan Andrews rides and claims 7lbs off FRUIT BLOSSOM in the Holycross Maiden hurdle. She has proved a bit up and down in her form but looks capable of winning something. She would prefer drying ground so hopefully there is no more rain.#
COVENTRY has a string of 8’s beside his name and we would be hopeful that that may change for the better today. This is another wide open contest and Sam Ewing has been booked to ride.
Lastly in the bumper we have ZAIDI who looks a very able competitor. He was second in a very competitive bumper back in November where the winner has gone on for us and will be representing the team in Cheltenham. The ground shouldn’t be an issue with his flat pedigree and hopefully this horse can show he has improved from his last run. Jamie Codd has been booked to ride.
