First up for me on Thyestes day is Coole Arcade, he has been running some very good races recently in defeat hopefully he can get his head in front soon. The ground should suit him here, it will be better than what he ran on last time out at Clonmel. He drops back in trip to two miles which shouldn’t be an issue.

Gentlemansgame runs in a very competitive renewal of the Galmoy Hurdle, Klassical Dream a former winner of the Supreme and a grade one over Christmas at Leopardstown sets a very high standard. Gentlemansgame was a bit keen and fresh at Leopardstown on his first run of the season, I have ridden him since and he seems really well. He is a horse that has a lot of ability, and he should be involved at the business end of the race.

Eklat De Rire is my ride in the Thyestes, the Ladbrokes Trophy last time out at Newbury just didn’t go to plan. He wasn’t himself at all and we ended up pulling up, the good news is he seems well at home and that run is well behind us. I am very much looking forward to riding him here the conditions should suit, hopefully he can run a very big race.

My last ride of the day is on Coeur Sublime who has had to chase home the Arkle favourite Ferny Hollow twice this season finishing second and then third at Leopardstown last time out. He is a very good horse in his own right, his jumping over fences has been good so far, let’s hope he can get his head in front over fences today.
