For Thurles we don’t have any runners in the first two races and plough on straight to the 2m5f handicap chase where we have GALLYHILL. This horse has been doing well with us and is top weight in this. We would like to see him improve further so this would be a good test for him with Davy Russell in the saddle.
Moving on to the novice hurdle we have two runners; CARDAMON HILL and SANTONITO. It was great to see Cardamon Hill score the last day after being so close on a few occasions. This looks a good race for him to try and advance and he will be ridden by Jordan Gianford. Davy Russell will ride Santonito who was also a winner last time out. Both horses have very similar profiles and hopefully can put in good performances.
Finally our last runner in Thurles is ROCK ON CASSIE in the handicap hurdle where she will be near the top of the weights. This is her first run after a break so she comes here fresh and will be ridden by Sam Ewing.
