Koroleva is in the opening maiden hurdle here, and Paul Townend is on board.
She ran a blinder in Cork and just got touched off. This is two furlongs further, and with that run under her belt, plus the extra couple of furlongs here, she should be hard to beat.
We’ve two in this. Patrick Mullins is on Masons Daughter with Paul on Robin de Carlow.
I was very taken with Masons Daughter. She was very, very good in Ballinrobe. Robin was in Klibeggan before, and was good too, but she’ll have to up it again to beat Masons Daughter.
She was so impressive and could be a mare with a big future.
Paul Townend is also on Shush in this one for us. She won a bumper first time out. She’s a handy little filly who jumps well, she’s sharp and she jumps well.
She’ll give a good account of herself, I’d fancy Mason’s Daughter and Koroleva more for sure.
Nessun Dorma is my ride in this handicap hurdle. He was a obviously a good winner at Galway where Billy Lee rode him.
There’s a good run in him over hurdles, and I think he’d like the dry ground – I hope they don’t get too much rain in Killarney.
We also run Lareena, Danny Mullins is riding her.
She probably wants a bit further, though she was third over this trip in May on this track, but I’m looking forward to riding Nessun Dorma and he has a great chance.
Solindian is working nicely at home, he stays really well, he’s plenty fit and he should run a good race. He’s a strong stayer.
We could have a few winners at Kilbeggan, if I had to order them in preference I’d go Masons Daughter first, Koroleva second, Solindian next and then Shush.
