Places available per race are subject to change, if fields reduce in size


Race 1 (12:15pm) DYSART DYNAMO

WIllie Mullins runner who is three for three so far, including on hurdling debut at Cork (2m, soft), easing to a 19 length victory last month. No surprise to see go in as odds on favourite and it would be a massive surprise if anything but a win was gained here.

Race 2 (12:45pm) HIAOU

Two starts for this Gordon Elliott runner, who debuted third at Naas (2m 3f, yielding to soft) back in November, when 11.5 lengths behind winner, Eric Bloodaxe. He failed to finish in latest at Leopardstown on Boxing Day, when chasing on in fourth and being brought down two from home. Expect another solid performance here and to feature in the closing stages, barring any errors.

Race 3 (1:15pm) SUPREME JET

Five race maiden, who picked up a placed finish at Naas back in November on the penultimate start, when 8 lengths adrift of Eric Bloodaxe and ahead of the aforementioned Hiaou. He shaped up well, last time out at Limerick and should relish the reduction in trip in this contest, to feature. Places at least expected for Oliver McKiernan’s runner.

Race 4 (1:45pm) BREEZY BELL

Winner back on the flat in August 2020 and it took eleven races til the latest at Fairyhouse (2m, yielding to soft) last month, to repeat that feat, when 8 lengths clear of Sil Ver Klass, taking advantage of a slipping mark. Capable of continuing the run here, providing she takes to the extended trip.

Race 5 (2:20pm) BOB OLINGER

Henry De Bromhead’s charge has five wins in six and goes looking for a five-timer here in this contest. Winner of the Ballymore Hurdle at the Festival back in March, when 7.5 lengths clear of Gaillard Du Mesnil and looked good on seasonal return at Gowran Park (2m 4f, soft), when 6.5 lengths clear of Bacardys and a further 10 lengths clear of the rest. Massive odds on favourite and another which would be a shock, if anything other than a win was earned here.

Race 6 (2:50pm) FIZZLESTICK

Strong form, this season so far, placing second at Fairyhouse (2m 7f, yielding to soft) back in November, before picking up a third (of six) in the Grade 2 – Dawn Run Mares Chase, as a 150/1 shot, nineteen days ago, 27 lengths behind Concertista. Looked to enjoy debut over fences and looks open to further improvement here
