It was great to see Mengli Khan dominate in his race yesterday and really stretch clear. Today we head to Galway for an evening of jumping with 5 runners.
BULL HALSEY goes in the opener, the Kenny Developments Maiden Hurdle over 2m. This will be a switch back to hurdling after a run in a bumper last time out. Hurdling looks more his game and he will be ridden by Keith Donoghue.
We skip the next race and move onto the third, the Deacy Gilligan Hurdle over 2m5f which has cut up to a strong field of 5 runners. A favourite of the yard, THE STORYTELLER looks to backup his win around this track with another good run. My Sister Sarah looks the big danger to us today. Keith Donoghue has been booked to ride.
Another previous Cheltenham winner throws his hat in the ring in the shape of ARAMAX for the Win Big With Tote Beginners Chase. He gets a weight for age allowance as the youngest horse in the race. He is an accomplished hurdler with the build of a chaser in the making.
Finally in the last race we have two runners ELUSIVE GIGOLO and MR SOLOMON. Elusive Gigolo had a pleasing run first time out when coming 4th, he is one we think can go better with a run under his belt and will be ridden by Jamie Codd. Mr Solomon makes his racecourse debut and looks a nice sort at home so far, we’ll be looking forward to seeing him run, Lisa O’Neill rides.
