Race 4: Champion Hurdle Challenge Trophy (Grade 1)

State Man is the stand out runner in this field. Iberico Lord was supplemented into the filed and is an interesting addition to the final field. Potentially he can go on to win this race if pushed and motivated correctly in the Champion Hurdle, but the door is open to other runners to pick up a surprise win. Expect an exceptional display of skill and poise.

Race 5: Close Brother Mares Hurdle

Marie's Rock was very disappointing last year in a very tactical affair, and this year you can expect a similar run to last year. Lossiemouth is one of the most improved runners on the field. She looks more relaxed this year and up for the race, however she is new to this distance. She has matured mentally and physically and is going to get better as time goes on.

Race 6: Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

If you look at the Spring Juvenile Hurdle and the Leopardstown over December, One Partir was one of the most eye catching runners in that field. This runner should be comfortable in this grade 1 event along side Ndaawi and Batman Girac, who will be on a lot of punters bet slips this afternoon.
