12.05 – Beginners Chase
Pleasant Company looks to be a chaser, he’s schooled well at home and he seems to be in good form. Altiepix sets a good standard and Montys Meadow didn’t look too bad on his last start but Pleasant Company always looked like a chaser, and he should be good enough to win.

1.05 – Hurdle
It’s a better race here than it was in Thurles, there’s horses with higher ratings in this race. High Stratos didn’t run too badly in Punchestown the other day, Double Seven makes a long awaited comeback. Noble Emperor is another one who has the potential to run well. Seabass is in good form, he won well eleven days ago and we expect him to run well again here.
2.05 Novice Hurdle
I haven’t ridden Nambour very often but he’s done nothing wrong. He won his point-to-point, he won his bumper and he won his maiden hurdle. He;s unbeaten so far but hopefully I can do something about that today.
I was very impressed with Up For Review in his maiden hurdle, the 2nd and 3rd reappeared and were 1st and 2nd in maiden-hurdle on Tuesday so hopefully the form has worked out well.They’re both healthy, they’re both well and you would hope they’d both be better than Jet Stream Jack.

3.35 – Bumper
Kilcomer isn’t that big but she’s tough and she’s fit. Because of her size I don’t ride her that much at home so I can’t really tell you more than she’s fit and well. Her weight today could be an issue, she’s not the biggest in the world but it’ll be the same for them all. I would worry about real, real heavy ground for her.
