Race Tip

COVENTRY made a promising start to life with Gordon Elliott when runner-up over an extended 2m7f at Punchestown. He was beaten by a head over a similar trip on soft ground at this track last year. The form of Merlin Giant's victory in a maiden hurdle at the festival at this track in July looks very strong. He stayed on well to win by four lengths over an extended 2m and the horses in second, third and fifth landed maiden hurdles on their next starts. He is up in trip, but looks to have plenty of scope over hurdles. He may not want bottomless ground, though. His stablemate, Bold Getaway, is returning from a long absence, but was a ready winner of a maiden hurdle on attritional ground at Limerick last Christmas. The Big Galloper hasn't been out since winning at Musselburgh in February and is worth checking for market strength.
