13:45 Pont Du Gard

PONT DU GARD has more than enough ability to win a maiden hurdle of this standard and today could be the day. Lucky Tenner showed improvement in the first-time hood last month and should not be far away while surprise Down Royal bumper scorer Paty’s Honour is respected as are Corbeau, Broken Bond and Jack In The Box.

14:20 Slip Of The Tongue

On account of his progressive profile and relative youth, SLIP OF THE TONGUE has a good chance of confirming Punchestown form with Deploy The Getaway on 4lb worse terms. In the same colours as the selection, former star bumper performer Gypsy Island is an intriguing runner.

14:55 Palace Rock

Denis O’Regan has ridden PALACE ROCK only three times, but has been aboard for both his wins. O’Regan’s tactical awareness and vast experience could be a factor in this renewal of recent rivalry with Take All who has a 7lb claimer aboard. The progressive Macs Charm and the tough and dependable Minx Tara may also feature.

15:30 Kashi

There are several potential dark-horses here, including handicap newcomers Birdsandthebees, Ferrum, Flying Hawaiian and Unaswered. However, there is a good case to be made for established handicapper KASHI who is tipped to uphold last month’s Fairyhouse form with Better Times Ahead. There was a valid excuse for Derridae last time.

16:05 Lifetime Ambition

Jessica Harrington bagged a nice pot at Leopardstown last week and, with the stable coming back into form, LIFETIME AMBITION could be hard to beat despite the fact he has to give weight to Jeremys Flame. West Cork Wildway is not out of it.

16:40 Champagne Platinum (NAP)

National Trial second and Kim Muir entrant CHAMPAGNE PLATINUM (nap) has settled in well with Enda Bolger and can give owner JP McManus a pre-Cheltenham morale-boost. Thyestes Chase form suggests that Franco De Port and Diol Ker are capable of getting into the shake-up. Stormy Judge should be well primed after a warm-up over hurdles.

17:15 Liberty Dance

Narrowly beaten in the Grade 2 Mares’ Bumper at the Dublin Racing Festival, LIBERTY DANCE should gain some compensation. Dorans Weir might be the one to chase her home.
