Chester & Dundalk 12/05/17

Tribal Path (1:50) runs today in Chester. He travelled over on Wednesday afternoon and has settled in well. He may be a big horse but Tribal is incredibly agile and we are hopeful that the track may play to his strength’s. Unfortunately, the draw has not been kind but usual tactics will be employed. It is a hot race but off a low weight if he can reproduce his Irish Lincoln run over a more ideal trip today he could be involved. Conor Hoban rides.

 

At Dundalk tonight we run two, we were delighted to get a win into Indian Tomahawk (5:40) last week at Clonmel and we have found a similar event here tonight. This horse was just lacking a bit of confidence when he first arrived but has slowly come to himself and we’re hopeful he can step forward again tonight. The unknown for us is the trip but he gave the impression last week that a step up wouldn’t be a problem. Shane Foley rides.

Wild Shot (7:55) is a lovely horse to do anything with but as I’ve said before he needs to fill his frame before we think about competing against older horses. We feel he’s shown to be better on the grass and wouldn’t be running here but for the conditions of the race. Donagh O’Connor rides.
