16:15 – Mr Saxobeat

Paul Townend has opted to ride Tempo Chapter Two who finished mid-div in the two-mile County Hurdle at Cheltenham and takes a big step up in distance to three miles. You’d have to respect Paul’s decision though.

Danny Mullins rides Belle Metal who would really appreciate any rain that falls. One at a price I like from a yard that usually targets the Fairyhouse meeting is Tom Gibney’s MR SAXOBEAT who is one of two entries for the trainer. The step up in trip should help him hit the places at least.

16:50 – Glan

Seven entries for Willie Mullins in the 2m handicap hurdle that he has won five times in the last nine years. Where Paul Townend has opted to ride Farout who ran reasonably well when ninth to State Man in the County Hurdle. Hopefully, he‘s on a competitive mark.

Tax for Max fell in the County Hurdle but he should improve considerably as that was his first run since second to Farout at the Galway Festival. La Prima Donna fell when she looked like she was going to win last time but may want a little further than two miles.

Heia was a little disappointing behind Love Envoi at the Cheltenham Festival but has her chance on a winning run before that. Dad’s Lad hasn’t run since November while Hybery hasn’t run since Listowel and should come on for the run while Feigh is only a four-year-old who needs to leave her Cheltenham run way behind.

A lot of Willie’s runners will be outsiders and Farout and Tax for Max look the best of them. The one I though could run a big race was Gordon Elliott’s GLAN who ran really well here in November and was fifth to Party Central at the Dublin Racing Festival. An easier 2m trip here could suit her best.



17:25 – Cnoc Na Si 

A 2m 4f ‘bumper’ to end the day and Willie saddles two. Patrick rides Cnoc Na Si while Jody Townend takes the mount on Walk in the Brise. Both are decent and should improve for better Spring ground. CNOC NA SI will appreciate the step up in trip but it wouldn’t be the first time Jody Townend has beaten him on the perceived ‘second’ string.
