Although it’s a big field of 21 runners for this maiden hurdle, not many really count in this one.
I’m hoping Rhythm Divine can put her hurdling experience to good use and win this contest in the second race on the Naas card.
Her main danger is Yukon Lil for Willie Mullins, but with most of her good form coming on a sounder surface she may have it all to do to beat Thomas Gibney’s Rhythm Divine.
This looks a wide-open race, but one that appeals on the trading floor is Golden Symphony towards the bottom.
She didn’t get home on her last run over slightly further, so dropping back in trip here looks a shrewd move from the trainer. Young rider Conor McNamara takes off 7lbs too and that could prove vital in this one.
Conright Boy showed up very well on his handicap chase debut last time at Gowran Park.
He looked a winner in the straight only to fade late on into second place behind Allardyce. With that run under his belt though, he should take all the beating in a race lacking real depth.
12:50: Rhythm Divine – 7/4
13:55: Golden Symphony – 6/1
15:00: Conright Boy – 11/4
