It’s great that we are racing and the turf season gets underway at Naas today where we run three which includes Hamariyna in the Park Express Stakes.
My thoughts on our three runners are below.
3.00 Arcanears (Liam Browne)
He comes into the race in good form and we have decided to take 10lbs off him with Liam Browne. We know that he handles soft ground, but I’d imagine that conditions today will be very dead and holding. He has a reasonable draw in 8 and he is a good solid handicapper and I’d be expecting a good run from him.
3.00 Sendmylovetoyou (Ronan Whelan)
She won her maiden first time out last season and she comes into the race in good form. She has done well and strengthened up a lot over the winter and she has a good draw. She lacks handicap experience, but she won her maiden on slow ground and her work has been good and I’d be expecting a good run from her.
4.30 Hamariyna (Ronan Whelan)
She is a filly that we like. She won a Guineas Trial last year, but after that, she met with a setback at the wrong time, which meant that she missed a good bit of the second half of last season. She is in good form and we know that she likes an ease in the ground. She has pleased me in her work on the lead up to today and while she has to give a lot of weight to her rivals, I think she’ll run a good race.
