The first selection from us on Wednesday at Naas comes in a very hot Novice Chase over two miles and the horse we have sided with is Energumene for Willie Mullins.
The seven year old gelding has been very lightly raced for his age, being seen twice in bumpers when looking like a nice prospect and only one over hurdles, when again looking like a very likeable type after bolting up by 19 lengths at Gowran.
Mullins decided to send him chasing this season again at Gowran Park and he went on to hose up in a Beginners Chase over 2m4f by 18 lengths.
When analysing the sectional time of that race the numbers look really smart and now it is interesting to see him drop down to, two miles.
He is a horse with bags of potential that is slightly fragile, but from what he has shown so far will be tough to beat.
