We kick the day off with what could possibly be the hottest Listed chase to happen at Thurles. PRESENTING PERCY takes his second start with us in the Listed Boomerang Chase over 2m6f. He will be joined by Punchestown Gold Cup winner Kemboy and Cheltenham Gold Cup 4th Monalee and Graded chaser Darasso. Percy will have the benefit of having a run under his belt from Down Royal and will be partnered by Jack Kennedy.
FRONTAL ASSAULT takes on another small field in the I.N.H. Stallion Owners EBF Rated Novice Hurdle over 2m7f. Yet to win a race, this previous point to pointer should relish the step up in conditions and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
Our next runner is INSANE BOLT goes in the ThurlesRaces.ie Handicap Hurdle but might not appreciate the ground at today’s meeting. He takes his chance here and he is in good form at home, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
Finally in the bumper we have two runners, STRANGER DANGER looks a nice horse a home but lacks racecourse experience against some of these runners. He is the pick of Jamie Codd. FOURNEUX D’ISANKA couldn’t build on 3rd place from March when running in Wexford last time but should be better for it here, Hugh McOwan takes the ride and will claim 7lbs.
