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


Race 1 (1:30pm) DYSART DYNAMO

Winner of all four races so far, including the Grade 2 – Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle at Punchestown (2m, soft) back in January, when 19 lengths clear of Gringo D’Aubrelle. He didn’t look anywhere near his limit that day and could well push on to further great success here, with Constitution Hill and Jonbon the main threats.

Race 2 (2:10pm) BLUE LORD

Comes into this contest off the back of a treble, scoring at Leopardstown in the Irish Arkle, beating race rival, Riviere D’Etel by half a length last month, who opposes again. Edwardstone is the other main concern here, but another bold performance is expected from this WIllie Mullins charge.

Race 3 (2:50pm) NOBLE YEATS

Won a maiden chase at Galway (2m 2f, soft) back in October and after a brief dip in form, he returned to somewhat of his best, when second to Ahoy Senor at Wetherby last month, when 5.5 lengths adrift in the Grade 2 – Towton Chase last month. He isn’t the most fluent of jumpers, but has chances here, with Sam Waley-Cohen onboard.

Race 4 (3:30pm) HONEYSUCKLE

Not much more needs to be said about henry De Bromhead’s star turn, with fourteen wins in fourteen runs, including this race last year and more recently, the Irish equivalent at Leopardstown, when 6.5 lengths ahead of Zanahiyr. Clear favourite and a genuine surprise, if she doesn’t win once again.


Another Henry De Bromhead runner, with last year’s Dawn Run winner, looking to build upon a decent return to action this season, when fifth at Punchestown, before a third of nine at Leopardstown in a Grade 3 – Mares Hurdle, 1.25 lengths behind Royal Kahala. She gave weight that day, but comes into this with plenty of expectation and can take the win, if showing that recent form again.

Race 6 (4:50pm) BRAZIL

Two wins in ten starts, including the latest, when taking the spoils at Naas last month, when 13 lengths clear of Un Des Flos in a Novice Hurdle. Looks to have more to come, but this may be just too much, with places more than likely.
