DAVY RUSSELL blog: Naas Sunday

I’ll be heading over to Cheltenham on Monday morning when I fly into Birmingham Airport – I never thought I’d be heading back there this year as a jockey 😊.

Anyway, before that there’s some good racing at home here in Ireland with some big names in action who are staying at home rather than heading over the water for the Festival. I am heading to Naas to ride a couple including Irish Point in the Grade Three Kingsfurze Novice Hurdle.

We lost the Navan card on Saturday due to frost and snow but hopefully we’ll get better luck at Naas.

The videos I filmed in London last week are also up so you can get my early thoughts on the big races.

SUNDAY

NAAS

CLODDERS DREAM (1.57pm)

He only made his debut just before Christmas in Clonmel where he didn’t quite see it out behind a good one of Willie’s (Impaire Et Passe). He was much better in Punchestown next time when fourth to Tactical Move but didn’t step forward as we’d have liked behind Captains Nephew in Clonmel the last day. We feel that Clodders Dream ? is better than he showed that day and hopefully the step back up in trip will help him a little too. ⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MARKET

IRISH POINT (2.32pm Naas (Kingfurze Novice Hurdle – Grade 3)

This lad was brilliant in Cork on his debut and was unlucky not to win the Grade One in Fairyhouse last December when headed by Marine Nationale on the line. That’s top-class form and he certainly wasn’t disgraced here in Naas up in trip two starts back either. He was just run off his feet a little behind Il Etait Temps at the Dublin Racing Festival and will appreciate this return to calmer waters on softer ground. Irish Point ? may want further than this two miles in time, but he’s plenty of class. ⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MARKET

Good Luck
Davy

It was lovely to get back riding last weekend in Leopardstown and Fils D’oudairies did it nicely switching back to hurdles. In truth we half expected that the last day at the Dublin Racing Festival but things just didn’t go right. It’s been a busy old week in the build up to Cheltenham and I’ll be doing a blog every day next week with thoughts on my rides.

The videos I filmed in London last week are also up so you can get my early thoughts on the big races.

Anyway, before all that I’m in Navan on Saturday for three rides…


SATURDAY

NAVAN

SMOOTH PLAYER (1.40pm)

This fella was really impressive in his bumper at Galway and then disappointed us a little after that. Having said that Smooth Player was chasing home the likes of The Nice Guy and Facile Vega. He was a good fourth in Naas the last day and I’d like to feel he has a decent chance of getting back to winning ways. ⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MARKET

LANDRAKE (2.50pm)

Things didn’t go well for us the last day here in Navan when this lad came down three out and I got a fair kicking. He was just getting into the race that day and has had a fair bit of time to get over that spill. Landrake’s done plenty of schooling out in the field and hopefully he can get back on track here. ⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MARKET

PATS CHOICE (4.35pm)

I won on him here at Navan last September and he’s pretty consistent to be fair. Pats Choice stepped up from his chasing debut in Clonmel the last day and I’m hopeful he can take another step forward here. ⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MARKET

Good Luck
Davy
