The Charles Byrnes trained Solwhit is well on his way back to previous Grade 1 glory, winner of 6 grade 1 events, after being sidelined to injury for nearly two years. Solwhit was the only rival to Bog Warrior at Punchestown on New Year’s Eve and is a strong contender in the Grade 3 Limestone Lad Hurdle at Naas. Byrnes was happy with his first run out, but believes the second run will tell a lot more about the future of the gelding.
Willie Mullins has had his eye on The Irish Racing Writers Novice Hurdle with Un Atout for quite some time. This will be Un Atout’s third run out with success in both previous races, one being at Naas in January last year. The Ronald O’ Neill trained Rory O’Moore will have other ideas as he hopes to reappear under more favourable conditions and return to winning ways after a disappointing race at Leopardstown over the Christmas.
The going is currently heavy, with a mixed forecast. Tomorrows’ racing at Naas is a very strong card and, as always, Naas is a good guide for Cheltenham. The first of the seven racecard goes to post at 1pm with the feature race, The Grade 2 Woodlands Park 100 Club Novice Steeplechase, taking place at 2.10pm.
Admission is just €15 with a free €5 bookie betting voucher, €9 with a free tea/coffee for seniors, students (under26) and children (under 18) are admitted free.
