The horses remain in very good form and we had another winner during the week with Spelga, which maintains our good strike rate up there and my thoughts on tonight’s runners are below.

5.15  Arcanears (Ronan Whelan)

He handles the surface well for a horse that likes an ease in the ground and he won well the last night. He got a great ride on that occasion – the gaps came at the right time for him and it was an overdue success. The same type of horses take him on again tonight – we meet the second and third again, but he is working well and he goes there with his chance.

5.45  Nice Mistake (Ronan Whelan)

She’s a nice filly that is ready to start off. She shows a good attitude and goes nicely at home. She is a filly that will benefit from the experience and is one that will strengthen up a good bit over the winter.

7.45  Sky Seven (Ronan Whelan)

He is a good tough, consistent horse who’ll tackle a mile and a half for the first time tonight. He ran well the last night and he meets the winner and the third again, but I think the step up to a mile a half, might bring about more improvement from him. We know that he handles the surface and I am looking forward to a good run from him.
