Ruby Walsh: I’ve got some interesting rides at Naas, but I’m hopeful rather than confident

by Aidan Elder | February 22, 2015

1.50 Naas – 2m Maiden Hurdle

Ruby’s Ride: Hold The Line

I’ve got a good chance to get on the board at the first time of asking with Hold The Line, but A Hardy Nailer ridden by Mark Walsh is the big danger. I’d be a little more bullish if I hadn’t seen the overnight rain because he’s a better horse on drier ground but he’s around 4/1 which suggests he should get into the frame and that’s what I’m expecting.


2.50 Naas – 2m 4f Novice Handicap

Ruby’s Ride: Sir Harry Cash

Course form is the big thing in my favour in this race and it’s around his ideal trip. It’s a wide open handicap and Empire Of Dirt is the one we all need to beat. I thought he was going to win easily at Thurles last time out when he fell at the second last and he’s well treated on the handicap. I’d be hopeful of a place for my lad, but he has a bit to find to win here. 


3.20 Naas – 2m Novice Hurdle

Ruby’s Ride: Max Dynamite

He’ll need to improve on his Limerick run when he was beaten by Kitten Rock but All Hell Look Loose and Aminabad have similar form through a run at Punchestown behind Bentelimar. Modem brings a strong level of form and the experience, but hopefully Max Dynamite has the class. We’re happy with him at home, we think he’s a better horse now than what he was at Christmas and we’re hopeful of a big run. 



3.50 Naas – 2m Paddy Power Betting Shop Chase

Ruby’s Ride: Twinlight

He seems to be in good form. He ran ok at Punchestown behind Hidden Cyclone and he ran a good race at Ascot behind Dodging Bullets so he comes into this in decent form. Mallowney will be hard to beat though because he strolled up in a handicap at Fairyhouse last month. I’ll do my best to beat him, but if he’s in the same form as he was last time out, it’ll be very difficult.
