FLY SMART runs in the opening maiden hurdle and the drying ground will suit. He’s well thought of and if he can get his head in front now, he could be one to be competitive at the Punchestown Festival and be a novice hurdler all through the summer.
The 2m 2f hurdle at 14.45 sees the Mouse Morris trained-FRENCH DYNAMITE drop way down in class and he should be able to get back to the winners’ enclosure here for the first time since his novice hurdle win at Thurles just over 12 months ago.
Dr Mikey should go a good gallop and that should suit Mouse Morris’ runner. I rode ROYAL ILLUSION in her work during the week and she went really well. The drying ground should suit her ,and she was third to Delvino on soft ground at Naas in December.
Royal Illusion has some good Flat form to her name also and despite being a nine-year-old she was a late starter going jumping and she can collect in this contest. She looks my best bet on the card.
KLASSY KAY beat Exit to the West at Punchestown over 2m 4f and the step up in trip there brought about a bit of improvement. She’s snuck up to a rating of 107 and probably needs to win again to give herself a chance of getting into a big race. Annie Pender is really suited by going left-handed and could be a contender, but Klassy Kay could still be a step ahead of the handicapper.

LIVELOVELAUGH will probably go to Aintree after this 2m 5f content which looks wide open. He’s not getting any younger and could be vulnerable to an improver in the field like Gearoid O’Loughlin’s seven-year-old Mitchouka.
Livelovelaugh put in a really good run at the Dublin Racing Festival behind Off You Go and Minella Times and a reproduction of that run would put him bang there.
Patrick rides Dark Raven in the bumper. He was bought at the Land River Sales and horses who have had a run will get priority in the ballot for their bumper at the Punchestown Festival. Dark Raven goes nicely at home, but will definitely improve for this run. EYEWITNESS was a winner at Naas last time and could prove hard to beat.
