We head to Thurles today with 4 runners

HAPPY D’EX is our first runner of the day in the mares beginners chase. She ran a great race on her chasing debut to just be denied first place honors but didn’t quite fire last time out. She’s fresh back from a short break and could go close today under Jordan Gainford.

We saddle two runners in the End Of The Season Hurdle. JAYCEAN was unlucky to fall when going well in a pertemps qualifier at Musselburgh last time out. He could run a big race under Danny Gilligan today with the help of his 7lb claim provided he puts in a clean round of jumping. VINA ARDANZA was slightly disappointing at Leopardstown last time out when stepping up in trip to 3 miles for the first time. He was a smart hurdler over 2m4f and we’re hoping to see a better run from him today. Ben Harvey rides and claims 5lb.

Our last runner of the day is SMOKEY PUTNUM in the bumper. He has the benefit of more experience on the track than the rest of his rivals but will need to improve on what he has shown so far. Josh Williamson takes the ride claiming 7lb.
