Rubi Light has class to blow Cyclone away

Published 19/02/2013 | 04:00

THE postponement of the Red Mills Chase adds extra spice to this afternoon's re-arranged Navan card, which now stages four Grade Two contests.

Rubi Light is going for a hat-trick of wins in the rescheduled Gowran feature and despite it being moved away from his beloved Kilkenny track, Robbie Hennessy's charge should have too much for his three rivals.

Rubi Light is running over his optimum distance and the only possible danger is that the fitting of cheekpieces will give a new lease of life to Hidden Cyclone.

In the Ladbrokes Boyne Hurdle, Thousand Stars is another odds-on shot that should have little difficulty in justifying favouritism. Ruby Walsh's mount is a model of consistency and a repeat of his last run behind stablemate Hurricane Fly can see him land the spoils – at the main expense of Si C'Etait Vrai.

The trainer of the latter, Dessie Hughes, should strike in Ten Up Novice Chase in which his Tofino Bay, a course-and-distance winner, has cast-iron credentials under Davy Russell.

In the Flyingbolt Novice Chase, Twinlight's concession of 6lb to Russell's mount Dedigout might prove beyond him.
