12:05 Leopardstown – Goodie Two Shoes

I’m interested to see how Goodie Two Shoes goes if she takes her chance here. She’s two wins form three starts on the Flat and is rated 95 there. If she can reproduce that form over timber she’ll have a chance.

12:35 Leopardstown Dysart Dynamo

DYSART DYNAMO could be a sight to behold if his jumping is accurate on chase debut. Will likely bounce out, go hard and be tough to catch once his jumping is ok.

13:10 Leopardstown – Chacun Pour Soi

CHACUN POUR SOI is rising 11 but he still sets the standard here and Blue Lord needs to improve plenty to beat him.

13:29 Limerick – Kalanisi Star

Kalanisi Star is a five year old point winner who went to Oliver McKiernan for £65k after that. He bolted up in a 2m2f Gowran Park bumper on rules debut in March.

16l 2nd that day was Monbeg Park who is probably going to get a mark in the mid 130’s. Kalanisi Star dropped to 2m for hurdles debut but won nicely from Pink In The Park at Gowran and was really strong at the finish. He shaped like he would stay further and 4th Conna Cottage won his next start to frank that form.

13:45 Leopardstown – Facile Vega

There isn’t too much to say apart from just watch Facile Vega!

14:20 Leopardstown – Winter Fog

WINTER FOG is fascinating on first start for Willie Mullins. The trip would seem short but in WP Mullins we trust.

Facile Vega wins at Leopardstown

15:00 Leopardstown – Panda Boy

Mr Incredible is interesting on his debut for Willie. JJ Slevin rides Panda Boy and carries 10st 13lbs. He won the Pertemps Qualifier here last Christmas off 128 and that was a decent renewal. He was an impressive winner on his chase debut at Punchestown at the end of May when winning easily over 3m beating the likes of Everglow, Tullybeg and Dunboyne. He’s been given two low key runs in Graded races as I predicted and think this has been a long term plan now going back up to 3m on handicap debut over fences.

15:35 Leopardstown – Fact To File

Fact To File won point to point in February in good fashion and looks a likely winner on a bumper debut here for Willie Mullins.
