This weekend promises to be the most informative yet with many of this year’s leading Cheltenham Festival hopes putting their credentials on the line at the Dublin Racing Festival.
I’m keen to take on one of the market leaders in the novice hurdle division and I’m also going against the grain with a lesser exposed candidate in the bumper on Saturday.
We’ve then got Musselburgh’s two-day meeting to savour where I have a good feeling about one for the Edinburgh National, whilst there could be a Grand Annual prospect lurking in one of the handicaps.
If that’s not enough, I’ve also highlighted a handicap debutant at Carlisle on Monday. This is a horse that I first wrote about back in May and he’s now been given a mark. It could be their time to shine.
Win, lose or draw, it’s going to be an absorbing week.
“In my view this week’s edition of the Weekend Card is one of the best of the season, with Ronan Groome’s in-depth analysis of the Dublin Racing Festival, three entries from the Sleeper section and I have a couple of handicap hurdlers at Sandown and Leopardstown.”
