14:00 Whatsnotoknow

Harrie has claims if putting his best foot forward, while Exit Poll might just be the class horse of the race. Preference is for WHATSNOTOKNOW (NAP), a winner over hurdles here and a good second to Franco De Port in a beginners chase here. He should be hard to beat back on his favourite track after a good run over hurdles at Gowran.

14:30 Shopping Around

A competitive contest and cases can be made for many of these. The Chapel Field usually runs well here, while top-weight Chalky White, Clonmel runner-up Carnet De Stage and recent Naas winner Espion Du Chenet all come into it, albeit the latter has to bounce back.

The selection is SHOPPING AROUND though, second to Espion Du Chenet at Naas, and proved she was going the right way over fences that day. She can go one better here.

15:05 Shone Aussicht

SHONE AUSSICHT has had the form of her Fairyhouse third boosted and she could be the pick, while Gorki D’Airy should be suited by coming back in trip as he was keen over further at Tramore. Hamundarson is also in there with a chance although he has been a bit frustrating to follow.

15:35 Capodanno

A race of some depth, but the two Grade 1 entrants could dominate. Crosshill takes a drop in class after running in a Grade 1 at Naas, but has to give 7lbs to the probably progressive CAPODANNO and that one might just have too many guns.

16:10 Dunboyne

The addition of Fais Ton Chemin, who wasn’t in this initially, changes the complexion of the race and he should be suited by stepping up in trip. DUNBOYNE sets a good standard and will be hard to beat in any case with Meticulous and Mount Melleray dangers.

16:40 Memory Of Youth

A good opportunity for MEMORY OF YOUTH to get off the mark. Ballymadun has a chance as does My Newbrook Rose at a bigger price.

17:10 Condesa

Cool Jet is probably the one to beat if he can improve for his Leopardstown debut, and there should also be more to come from Perfect Attitude after a good run here in December. But, this could well go to the Crawford’s newcomer CONDESA, one of their first runners for powerful owners with a pedigree to match.
