It’s hard to find a winner here. Ifyoucatchmenow will be at the forefront of the mind for many punters and a top pick.
She did win the National Trial in Punchestown back in February which was a good performance.
Conor McNamara rode her that day and claimed five pounds off her back. She has the penalty for winning plus a five-pound claim because Paul Townend takes the ride.
I think Cheb De Kerviniou, who was third in that race last month, and has been second to Cap York since in the Leinster National at Naas before Cheltenham, I think around Downpatrick might be too good for Ifyoucatchmenow.
I think Gavin Cromwell can’t train a loser at the moment. Everything he’s throwing out seems to be winning.
He fields Jimmil here. He beat Treacyenniscorthy by five-and-a-half lengths at Navan last time out. Treacyenniscorthy is a horse who has been so consistent all season, so it was an eye-catching result.
Jimmil here is number two on the card and coming off the back of that good win at Navan.
Jonathan Moore is riding for Cromwell, and because the stable is flying at the moment that’s why I’m backing him to win.
