We are looking forward to this Christmas, we have some nice horses entered over the week. Here are a few that are declared for Thursday:
He's a lovely horse who won his bumper nicely in Navan the last day, he has been schooling well at home and soft ground should be an advantage to him. We think he has a good chance.
2.20: Perfect Smile
He has come out of his fairyhouse run (3rd) very well. If the ground doesn't ride to deep he won't be far away again, but any more rain would be concern.
We were very disappointed with him the last day. Paul Towend rode him that day and said he slipped in to one of his fences and lost his confidence and never traveled in the race after that. So hopefully he'll jump better on Thursday but the rain is a big concern for him. Hoping for a good run.
2.55 Road to Riches
He has been in good form since fairyhouse (3rd Drinmore). We have dropped him down in trip from the last day to see will it help him, we think the course and ground will suit him. He will be up against it with Champagne Fever running, but if your not in you can't win!
3.30 The Herds Garden
Is a lovely horse who will love the ground soft. We felt we were beaten by a very good horse the last day at fairyhouse (Shaneshill). He has been working very well since and we're looking forward to him running. We think he should put up a good show.
We have a few declared in Down Royal as well which are in good form and think they'll run well.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS !
