Quantative' set for Kerry National: Bolger

GALWAY Plate runner-up Quantitativeeasing could tackle the Guinness Kerry National at Listowel on September 18 before embarking on a cross-country career for trainer Enda Bolger.

The eight-year-old left Nicky Henderson after unseating Tony McCoy in April, an incident which saw the champion jockey hospitalised.

However, he rediscovered all his old enthusiasm on his first run for Bolger and was only just denied in the feature race of the Festival.

"We got him around May time and we were over the moon with his performance in Galway," said Bolger.

"He has come out of the race really well and he'll get an entry in the Kerry National now, but long term he will go cross-country, and we will decide nearer the time whether or not he will run in Listowel.

"He has been schooled cross- country and he loves it.

"He will probably go to Cheltenham in November for the cross-country race there at the Paddy Power meeting," added Bolger.

"He is a lovely horse to have around the place."
