    Probably doesn't bode too well if they're bringing him out this early in the season.

    Might be a run in a maiden hurdle, and then a novice chase campaign to follow.

    Might be something for him in Galway

    Ricci has run some of his better novices early in the past

    Probably true.

    Just us so far Grass. We'll keep this place alive over the drab summer

    Penhill won his maiden hurdle at Tramore on 5th May last year and he did alright. Long Dog and Bachasson ran during the summer the previous season, so I wouldn't discount him just yet.

    his first bumper win was impressive, the stable certainly like him. One to note for these early early days

    Wonder if they might go back to France with Lac Kivu, for the G1 Prix Alain Du Breil later this month.

    Hurricane Fly took the same race in his juvenile season, and LK seemed to handle soft-ground fine when he was ran on the Flat.

    Just the £90K to the winner of the Alain Du Breil, and it's not usually a race WPM runs scared off with a top juvenile.

    Mullins has sent both Hurricane Fly and Footpad (won last year) to the race in recent times. Maybe they don't think Lac Kivu is that class?

    I hate when I see what looks like a promising novice and they mention 'staying' afterwards

    Guess 2m 3f on heavy would class as testing a stayer, not sure this yoke wants heavy but it is a nice pot to chase

    Senewalk goes in the 20:00 at Tramore tonight. He is dropped back to 2m5f today, after losing over 3m at Punchestown in May - which he either needed badly, or which exposed him as just not very good.

    At 13/8 (B365, others), I have given him the benefit of the doubt.

    coming to a tin of Pedigree Chum very soon

    wonder how many years out of the championship spotlight would it take for Ricci to get out of the game?

    None of his recent purchases strike as box office

    Frustrating lack of flat talk for sure. Was gonna open a thread for the Royal meeting but what's the point.

    Now you're starting to get it, Euro.

    PS. Most of that Derby field will end-up as plating hurdlers, so hardly out of context.
