8 runners at Cork today;
First up we have VEINARD in the Rated Novice Hurdle, fantastic run from him last time out at Leopardstown. He should handle todays ground after some decent runs in similar conditions. Jack Kennedy rides.
3 in the Maiden Hurdle: CANELIE – Mark Walsh, CHESAPEAKE – Keith Donoghue & HARDLINE – Jack Kennedy. Canelie and Hardline have the upper hand of our 3 – they face a large field of 20 runners.
OPTIMISED is next in the 3m Maiden Hurdle, another big field with 19 competitors and although yet to break his duck he’s in good fettle at home and looks great.
HIGH EXPECTATIONS (pictured) contests the Handicap Hurdle, we hope his last run was a one off and that he can regain some of his better form. Jack Kennedy rides.
GENERAL PRINCIPLE takes on the Beginners Chase with Jack Kennedy in the saddle, a big horse that improves for his runs he should relish todays ground. Also in this we have SQUOUATEUR partnered by Mark Walsh, he has been somewhat out of sorts this season so we hope he can get back to his best.
