1 50 Navan : My German purchase ELIS GURY should take all the beating in this maiden hurdle. He won his first three races in very impressive fashion in his home country for Miltcho Mintchev [Hoppegarten, Cologne and Dusseldorf], before a terrible draw and wide trip put paid to his chances when beaten 21 lengths by the Melbourne Cup winner, Protectionist in a Group Two at Hamburg,. He is undercooked going into today’s event but the work that he has done has been very impressive. You always worry first time over hurdles but hopefully he will have no mishaps and in that eventuality he should have plenty in the locker to collect this.
4 pts win and nap ELIS GURY at 11/4 PP.
