Just two runners this evening at Leopardstown.

 

6.50  BALEFIRE  (Shane Foley)

Balefire has been really consistent this season and he has run well in Leopardstown in the past.  It is a surprisingly small field but at the same time it is really competitive.  Our horse is solid at this level and is taking his racing really well.  A reproduction of any of his form would give him a winning chance.  As Ronan cannot make the weight, Shane Foley who has ridden him before rides.

8.30 TIRMIZI (Ronan Whelan)

Tirmizi has been running well in longer distance races lately but the drop back to 1 mile 5 furlongs should not be a problem.  We think he should be competitive in a race of this type.  He sometimes needs the race to unfold to suit him, he doesn’t like to be crowded.  It looks like they might go a good pace which would suit us.
