Though he didn’t get the job done when a short-priced favourite at Punchestown last time, GASPARD DU SEUIL can improve from that stable debut and score today. Decent bumper winner Homme D’Un Soir can give him a race, while Hazran has the ability to be involved.
A tight race in which all can be given a chance. O CONNELL STREET looks sure to have improved from his Limerick maiden run and can get off the mark. Fortune Street can go well in first-time cheekpieces, while Kapard and Make Good are noted.
With improvement to come after his return from a long lay-off at Galway last time, PEACE PARTY can get off the mark today. Clody Valley, Sirjack Thomas and Shes Flat Tothemat look to be his main dangers.
With improvement likely from his Tramore comeback, ALLBARONE (NAP) looks the one to beat in a lesser contest than that day. He has most to fear from Kilgorey, with Bowser and Steal The Thunder capable of running respectably.
All going well, the RSA second MINELLA INDO will have bigger fish to fry this season, but this looks an ideal starting point for Henry De Bromhead’s charge. Mugged close home at Cheltenham by Champ, he is an exciting prospect and while Milan Native has a run under his belt, a winning one at that, he still should be good enough to account for the latter. Turbojet is the clear third best on paper.
Jeremys Flame is likely to be a tough opponent, but ANDY DUFRESNE has always had the look of a chaser and the Grade 2 hurdle winner will be expected to climb quite a few steps at this game. An absence of 246-days is no real concern coming from these quarters, and it will be interesting to see what he can do here. Epson Du Houx and Exit Poll also add further intrigue to this fascinating contest.
With the stable in flying form, IDAS BOY will be well fancied to build on a highly promising intro at Clonmel behind a winning market leader. A former point winner, he looks pretty talented and will be difficult to contain here on his first start in almost a year.
His owners are also strongly represented by Fourneux D’Isanka. The latter was a good third in a decent contest at Leopardstown in March and clearly has wins in him. Il Courra and Mercury Lane are others to note.
