Drinmore Novice Chase Tips

Ruby Walsh: Gabynako was good on his Beginners Chase here on his last start. I loved the way he jumped, attacking fences and putting his rivals to the sword. I was really impressed with LIFETIME AMBITION at Down Royal when he beat Beacon Edge and Vanillier in a really competitive race. Whereas Lifetime Ambition was a bit in and out as a hurdler, the way he went about his business at Down Royal was eye-catching and I reckon he can overturn Gabynako here.
