Leopardstown Runners

12:10 Erratic Path & Rio De Cerisy

Erratic Path is a grand horse who will hopefully make up right into a helpful hurdler.

I’ve been proud of what he has proven us since he got here into the yard and he seems to be like a horse who will respect a visit in time so that is why he is making an attempt two and a half miles.


He hasn’t run since Might so I’m anticipating enchancment from him however he ought to run a strong race.

Rio De Cerisy solely acquired as far as the second hurdle on Wednesday and he is none the more severe for that so he is popping out once more shortly.

I’m anxious to get some expertise into him and hopefully he may have a hassle free spherical this time.

He gained a few occasions on the flat overseas and he appears a grand type so will probably be fascinating to see how he will get on.

12:45 Sire Du Berlais & Satoshi

Sire Du Berlais isn’t going to seek out it straightforward off prime weight right here however he is in good type and he seems to have come ahead nicely from his comeback at Naas final month.

He has but to win since coming to us however I feel there’s a good handicap hurdle in him as he confirmed when he was fourth in final season’s Martin Pipe.

I feel the three mile journey shall be high-quality for him and he ought to run a pleasant race.

Satoshi was nicely crushed in a Grade 2 at Navan final time however that was a messy race and I’m inclined to attract a line through his run there as he is a greater horse than he received to point out that day.

When he acquired his maiden hurdle within the stewards room that race was over two and three quarter miles so the additional couple of furlongs of this race gained’t be a problem for him.

He has a pleasant, mild weight and he might symbolize some every approach worth.

13:20 Gun Digger

I’m happy with how he has achieved since he has gone chasing.

He had a very good first run in Gowran final month and that type already seems strong and he carried out to an analogous degree at Navan final time when chasing house a sensible horse of Henry de Bromhead’s.

Each of these runs would entitle him to run nicely and he ought to give a very good account of himself.



13:50 Cracking Sensible and Apple’s Jade 

I’ve simply needed to take my time with Cracking Sensible since he got here again in from the summer time and he was by no means going to run a lot earlier than Christmas so the choice was made to maintain him hurdling for this season.

He was an excellent staying novice hurdler final season and it was a pity that he needed to miss Cheltenham with a late setback as I assumed he would have gone very properly within the Albert Bartlett.

That is going to be a troublesome sufficient start line for his season as he is taking on some high quality stayers and he goes to wish this run too so no matter he does right here he will enhance on dramatically.

Hopefully Apple’s Jade will have the ability to win this race for the second yr in succession however you’re taking completely nothing as a right at this degree and all of us noticed how good Faugheen was when he moved as much as three miles final season.

Her final efficiency at Fairyhouse was in all probability as good a show as she has ever put up since coming to us and she’s been in nice type since then.

That final run makes her the one to beat and hopefully that would be the case.

14:25 Monition & Critical Ego

Monition goes to need to step up now that he strikes right into a handicap and I’d should say that he has loads of weight for what he has carried out thus far.

When he ran at Thurles final time I used to be a bit disillusioned with him as thought he would have been nearer.

Earlier than that he confirmed up fairly properly in a maiden hurdle over this journey on respectable floor and if he might return to that type he would have an opportunity of creating his presence felt.

Critical Ego might run properly. It’s taken us slightly time to determine his greatest journey however I feel that this two and a half miles on respectable floor will probably be splendid for him.

He has a bit to seek out on type however he might be a bit higher than he has proven these days and I wouldn’t be stunned to see him run properly.

15:00 Outlander, The Storyteller and Shattered Love

Outlander often reserves his greatest for this race having gained it two years in the past and run third final yr.

He’s in fine condition and hopefully the return to Leopardstown goes to convey out the perfect in him.

He was nicely crushed by Street To Respect once they met at Down Royal final month and he’s going to have to enhance an excellent deal to show the tables with that horse however he is a greater horse at Leopardstown than he is anyplace else.

The Storyteller is in fine condition and I feel he will relish stepping again as much as three miles following his run within the Durkan Chase the place he was crushed lower than 5 lengths into fourth.

He progressed nicely from his first run of the season to Punchestown and I feel that there’s extra to return from him, particularly at this journey.

This race will inform us what course we have to take with him for the remainder of the season.

Shattered Love ran a stunning race within the John Durkan the place she completed out her race strongly to be crushed only a size and a half.

She is a Grade 1 course and distance winner and I do assume that she is going to be capable of maintain her personal in prime firm at this journey so I’m hopeful of an enormous run from her.

I might say that I’d choose to see the bottom somewhat simpler for her however she has coped properly with respectable floor prior to now.

15:35 Hell On Earth

He’s a pleasant sort by the identical sire as Samcro in Germany. Over the previous few weeks he’s been coming collectively properly in his work and he is displaying sufficient to recommend that he is able to begin out for the season.

He will probably be inexperienced having not had the good thing about a earlier run in a point-to-point so he will progress properly from this run however hopefully he will characterize us nicely.

Limerick Runners

12:30 Allee Bleue

He pulled up on his first begin for us at Navan just lately however his saddle truly slipped so you’ll be able to put a line through that run.

He was beginning to get drained at the time he pulled up and he in all probability will want one other run to be at his greatest however I do assume that there’s extra to return from him as a chaser.

13:40 Farclas

This can be a good race for Farclas as he will get to take on his personal age group quite than having to take on his elders.

I used to be very happy with his comeback run within the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle when he completed sixth to Apple’s Jade and he has improved since then.

He’s a Triumph Hurdle winner and that entitles him to take beating however this can be a high quality Grade three and it’s going to be robust sufficient for him to offer eleven kilos to Stormy Eire who was a really sensible juvenile final season.

14:10 Cool Getaway

He seemed a stunning horse when he gained his point-to-point two years in the past however he’s had a few little maintain ups which have stored him off till now.

It’s nice to have the ability to get him began for the season however as he has been off for therefore lengthy I’m anticipating him to wish this run and he will do higher sooner or later.

14:45 It’s A Lengthy Story

I assumed that he would be capable of give a very good account of himself on his first run for us at Tramore a number of weeks in the past however he ran deplorably and was crushed after a few flights.

He’s definitely higher than he confirmed there so I’d be hoping for a a lot better effort this time.

15:20 Simply A Boy

He began out with a stunning run in a Sligo bumper however he struggled afterwards and his first few runs over hurdles have been disappointing.

Nevertheless, his first handicap run at Clonmel a couple of weeks in the past was rather more encouraging and if he can construct on that I’d hope that he will have the ability to become involved right here.
