Parish Hall: Possible Leopardstown trial

Parish Hall: Possible Leopardstown trial

Jim Bolger has had a change of heart and could now let 2000 Guineas candidate Parish Hall have a run in a Leopardstown trial before his trip to Newmarket.

The master of Coolcullen had initially planned to send his Dewhurst Stakes winner straight to the Flat season's first Classic without a prep run, but he could now appear for the Guineas Trial at Leopardstown on April 15.

"He's very well, I'm very happy with him and he's done well. He's taking it all in his stride," Bolger told At The Races.

"I had said earlier, maybe about 10 days ago, that I wouldn't run him before Newmarket.

"But with the ground drying up, I just might let him run at Leopardstown."
