4.15pm – Mrs. Paddy Power Mares’ Chase

MICK FITZGERALD: It could be a Willie Mullins benefit race and ELIMAY gets the nod after some pretty smart runs.

RUBY WALSH: Willie Mullins saddles four runners and ELIMAY looks the best of them particularly on the drying ground.

GINA BRYCE: ELIMAY jumps well, stays well and unlike her stablemate Colreevy does not carry a penalty, She’s got my vote.

FRANK HICKEY: Elimay and Colreevy look difficult to split but SALSARETTA should enjoy the drying ground and can hit the places at least.

MATT CHAPMAN: Elimay will be hard to beat but MAGIC OF LIGHT is the each-way pick. She’s a better chaser than hurdler.

4.50pm – Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

MICK FITZGERALD: FIRE ATTACK looks unexposed and has some smart graded form to his name and his 138 rating looks competitive in the finale.

RUBY WALSH: GALOPIN DES CHAMP should be suited by the step up in trip and his run last time behind Appreciate It stands out. I favour him over stablemate Gentleman de Mee.

GINA BRYCE: The Irish have dominated this race and GENTLEMAN DE MEE could be absolutely thrown in off a mark of 139.

FRANK HICKEY: A wide-open contest so I’ll take two against the field in EGLANTINE DU SEUIL & FRONTAL ASSAULT each-way.

MATT CHAPMAN: GENTLEMAN DE MEE has only had three runs and bolted up at Naas last time. Could be chucked in at the weights for Willie Mullins.
