We don’t have to travel too far today as we go to Naas with some very nice horses.
ENVIOUS EDITOR hasn’t done anything wrong since coming to us and as twice finished third on all his starts for us so far. He looks like he’s one who might appreciate softer conditions and that’s what will come his way in this opening maiden hurdle, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
A Grade 2 is next on the line up, the Old Persian At Glenview Fishery Lane Hurdle over 2m. CALL ME LYREEN has turned into a very exciting young horse and is one that has gone from strength to strength. It’ll be a close run contest on paper as the majority of the field look proper national hunt types. Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
Our next runner is FANTASIO D’ALENE in the Irish Stallion Owners EBF Maiden Hurdle over 2m3f. This horse was very talented last season in bumpers and takes his chance here in the maiden hurdle. This will be his first start of the season and he is a horse who should improve with age and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride. Gars De Sceaux currently sits as second reserve and is one we would be very excited about to see run.
PARANOID goes in the Rathbarry & Glenview Novices Handicap over 2m4f. This horse would appreciate it if no more rain fell as we don’t want it getting too soft for him. He has been running really well since coming to us and we have booked Jack Kennedy to ride.
Finally in the Beginners Chase to round off the card we have 3 nice horses. COMMANDER OF FLEET wasn’t seen last season but was a very classy horse. He is built to go chasing and his form from that year places him with the best. Getting a mares allowance we have LARQUEBUSE who will be remembered for flying home to cause a dead heat last season. She will be ridden by Keith Donoghue. Finally rounding them off is WALKABOUT who will be ridden by Denis O’Regan. This horse has a bit of experience over fences and looks like he’ll be good fun.
