FormscanBy Michael Graham - BENBULBEN BOY was a smooth victor of a maiden hurdle over a similar trip at this track in May on jumping debut. Afterwards, jockey Keith Donoghue commented that he will be a grand horse for the summer so this son of Yeats should appreciate better ground. Denise Foster's stable is in good form at present. Ornua made all to win a small-field steeplechase in Tramore so arrives in good humour. Mike O'Connor's 7lb claim is clearly very handy. He will enjoy this ground. Ornua hasn't been out over hurdles in almost a year, though. The Getaway Star has plenty of good form in the book particularly behind Skyace. She was no match for a hot favourite in Kilbeggan, but that horse is clearly going places. The ground may not be ideal for her, though.

Quotes on Ornua (IRE)
I'm delighted with that and Rachael gave him a super ride. It's lovely to see him stay that trip because we have always campaigned him over two miles to two-and-a-half. We just said we'd take the chance stepping him up a bit further and he was really good. Rachael said he saw it out really well. He loved the (good) ground and we will consider where to go with him now. We will look at these sort of races but I suppose you could consider the Galway Plate as well. Maybe the conditions chase at Galway might suit him better, I’ll see what the owners would like to do.

Quotes on The Getaway Star (IRE)
Her form was very good. She ran well behind Skyace and was second to Royal Kahala . She was then nearly brought down at Leopardstown and we decided to keep campaigning in the bigger races and wait for next season. She is still a novice and my claim is gone now - 16 years later!
