We run our first 2yo of the season at Dundalk tonight and Vidiyni has been working nicely at home and he is ready to start off. It looks a good maiden on paper and there are some very well bred horses in the line-up and it will be interesting to see how our horse runs.
I was keen enough to wait for a 6 furlong maiden for him, as he is a horse that I think in time will get a bit further, but I just felt that if I started him off over 5, everything might have happened a shade too quick for him.
He comes from a good family and he’s by Siyouni, who is stallion that gets very good looking stock. We’ve had this horse away to Dundalk and he appeared to like the surface.
With Colm O’Donoghue riding in Ascot, Chris Hayes comes in for the ride and I think he’ll run a nice race, but whatever he does, he will improve a good bit for the run. He was always a fairly precocious colt and looks an early type, so we’ll get him started and see how he gets on.
We have a few more 2yo’s ready to run, but the bad weather and soft ground has held us up a bit.
As Vidiyni is concerned, we have been waiting to run him on nice ground and when this race was added to today’s card, we said that we’d get him started.
I haven’t entered anything for Cork at the weekend and we have a couple in at Dundalk on Sunday that may run.
I’ll make a few entries for Naas on Monday and with the weather due to settle down and improve a bit, a few of them might run and I’ll have another update on Friday about our runners over the weekend and Monday.
