Little King seeks Punchestown rule

first_imgLittle King Robin, the pride and joy of Colin Bowe’s Kiltealy yard, bids for her sixth win since May when lining up in the Listed Grabel Hurdle at Punchestown on Thursday. The King’s Theatre mare showed no ill effects following a little break when readily scoring at Gowran Park earlier this month as regular partner Mark Walsh adopted customary front-running tactics on the six-year-old to cruise home 15 lengths clear. “She’s in right form. She had a small break before her last run and is as fresh as paint. A drop of rain won’t do any harm and should leave just a little ease in the ground,” said Bowe. “If she puts up the same performance as the last day we will be delighted. ” The ground was so good we decided to bring her back with three races in mind, and the plan is to go to Down Royal for the WKD Hurdle (October 31) if she’s OK after this. “Then we will let her off.” Among her nine rivals is Storm Away, third last time in the Grade Three Dolores Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle at Tipperary, the consistent Well Tuned and Jacksonslady. The latter won this race three years ago but has been mainly campaigned over fences in recent seasons. center_img Press Associationlast_img
