I’m delighted to be again writing for Betway once more this season. Hopefully we’ll have an excellent season and we’ll have loads of winners collectively.
I solely have one runner this weekend, and it’s a mare who’s coming off a protracted lay off. My Pal Aoife has some capacity – she received a bumper two years in the past – and can profit from this expertise. It appears a superb little race, however we’re simply pleased to get her again on observe and we’ll see the place we’re along with her after this race.
We plan to run a pleasant horse at The Curragh on Monday. Miss Florentine will want a couple of to return out to get in at last declarations stage, but when she does get in, I feel she’ll go nicely.
We fancied her to run a giant race final time and she or he did simply that. She went from the entrance and was a bit of too eager, however she was solely crushed simply over a size in the long run. She’ll come on for that and I do assume she’ll go nicely once more.
Down Royal on Saturday
The Champion Chase (14:25) is a cracking race. isn’t it? Delta Work is clearly the most effective horse in it, however he does usually want his first run and he wanted it badly on this race final yr. His season received’t be about this race, I’m certain they’ll have targets that they’re working again from.
Henry De Bromhead’s horses are in nice type, he’s been having loads of winners and he might have one other with Chris’s Dream  . He was good final season, his solely blemish was within the Gold Cup however that may be excused.
Henry acquired him actually match to win the Troytown first time up, which was a correct efficiency, and if he’s in the identical form of health and type he received’t be too far-off underneath Robbie Energy.
One other horse I feel will go nicely is Straightforward Sport   for Willie Mullins within the 15:00. Willie received’t have many runners over this weekend as his have a tendency to begin a contact later than Gordon Elliott’s horses, however this horse does have a current win on his facet.
Within the early levels of the season, health and match practise are sometimes arduous to substitute, so I feel he’ll get the higher of Samcro in what’s a extremely thrilling race. Very like the Champion Chase, they’ll each be nice to observe.
I’m wanting ahead to seeing Sir Gerhard  within the bumper (16:10). He’s acquired a really lofty status and price some huge cash. It’s at all times thrilling to see horses with reputations as you by no means understand how good they may very well be.
Charlie Corridor Chase at Wetherby
The Charlie Corridor Chase (15:20) is the primary correct chase of the season within the UK and has been received by some cracking horses through the years. It’s a race I actually get pleasure from watching.
This yr, the beginning attraction is clearly Cyrname, however you’ve acquired to have a doubt over the actual fact he’s clearly significantly better going right-handed. His coach, Paul Nicholls, has additionally acknowledged that he’s higher going right-handed and he’ll know the horse higher than most!
With that in thoughts, final yr’s winner Ballyoptic  is the one I’m wanting ahead to seeing. Yearly at the moment, Nigel Twiston-Davies has his horses in fantastic type and this yr can be no totally different. He’ll be cherry ripe for this.
