It’s the last day of February as we head into the home run for Cheltenham preparations and we send 6 to Naas.
Our first runner is DEFI BLEU in the Grade B Chase over 2m4f. This horse has been ticking along nicely and gets a tongue tie for the first time here and will be ridden by Jack Kennedy.
SAEER has been going well and gets a workable mark for this handicap hurdle where we hope it can be helpful. He will have the added bonus of being ridden by 7lbs claimer Jordan Gainford.
For Division I of the Maiden Hurdle we have FOURNEUX D’ISANKA this horse has been running well and just needs to find that last bit of improvement so will be ridden by Jack Kennedy.
For Division II of the maiden hurdle we have ENVIOUS EDITOR who has his excuses for his run the last day over Christmas. Hopefully he is in better form today and will be ridden by Robbie Power.
PRESENTING DYLAN gets the Jordan Gainford treatment in the handicap hurdle as we seek to take a further 7lbs off his back in what looks a very competitive race.
Finally in the bumper we have GERRI COLOMBE who is already a winner in this sphere. It’s looks a tight pack of talented horses so hopefully his class will shine through.
