13:05 Boom Boom Boom

A first-time visor looks an interesting addition for BOOM BOOM BOOM and he can get the better of Tramore runner-up Trebizond who is likely to have improved for that outing and looks a big danger. Hurricane Alex finished ahead of a couple of subsequent winners on his most recent hurdles start and is another to consider.

13:35 Downthecellar

This race obviously revolves around DOWNTHECELLAR who is a whopping 35lb lower over hurdles than over fences. All of his chase form is going right-handed which is a slight concern but it’s still hard to oppose him. Facile Kilbeggan winner Berliet Express looks the main danger.

14:10 Christmas Jumper

CHRISTMAS JUMPER seems the most likely winner of a race that will not take much winning. He can still jump better. Shanacoole may be of some interest if popular in the betting.

14:45 Sweet Street

SWEET STREET, albeit rated 104 and relatively exposed, holds two of these on Ballinrobe form and this looks no stronger. Conquering Tara is an interesting rival in a moderate contest.

15:20 Optical Confusion

The four-year-old Druid’s Altar should win on paper but OPTICAL CONFUSION is a speculative choice at the likely prices, there likely to be a good bit of pace on.

15:55 An Droichead Eile

After a promising start over fences at Tipperary, the novice AN DROICHEAD EILE may be able to beat more exposed rivals on his handicap debut. My Oakclahome and Tiantu have both shown good form at this venue and are likely dangers, while it would be no surprise to see new rider Jordan Gainford get a good tune out of Allardyce.

16:30 Glenquin Castle

Having been value for more than the winning margin last time, GLENQUIN CASTLE may be able to complete his hat-trick off a 7lb higher mark. Avec Espoir was runner-up in this last year and will be suited by stepping back up in trip, while Double Windsor is another to consider after winning readily on his most recent outing over fences.
