Race 1 (1:20pm) TRITONIC

Four wins in eleven starts, but has won the last two races, taking the spoils at Ascot (1m 7f, soft) in a Class 3 Juvenile hurdle in January, before stepping up to Grade 2 level and taking the spoils in the Adonis at Kempton (2m, good), when 10 lengths clear of Casa Loupi last month. Demanding course will test his abilities, but drying conditions should suit here.

Race 2 (1:55pm) GANAPATHI

Winner on debut at Cork (2m, soft) in November, before stepping up to take a strong second in the Grade 2 Moscow Flyer Hurdle at Punchestown in January, just 3 lengths behind Dreal Deal. Back down in trip after the 2m 5f run in a Grade 1 contest at Leopardstown and Paul Townend onboard means Wilie Mullins fancies his charges chances here.

Race 3 (2:30pm) FAKIERA

Secured a double at Navan in November, when winning the Grade 3 Monksfield Hurdle, beating Fire Attack by half a length. Has since stepped again o to occasions, placing second, once again at Navan, before a creditable fourth in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown (2m 6f, soft to heavy) last time out, when 7 lengths adrift of the very capable Gailliard Du Mesnil and just 2 lengths behind main race rival, Stattler. Extra furlong arguably gives him the edge in this rematch and he should be in the mix as they head for home.

Race 4 (3:05pm) A PLUS TARD

Four wins in ten, including two in the last four starts. Placed third in the Ryanair Chase last year, when 1.75 lengths behind Min and in the latest of two starts this season, won the Savills Chase at Leopardstown (3m, yielding), when half a length ahead of Kemboy and a further 1.5 lengths clear of Melon. Tongue tie that day is retained for this contest and he is expected to be in a battle with both Al Boum Photo and Champ for the win.

Race 5 (3:40pm) BOB AND CO

Was pulled up on debut, but has since won all three starts, including a Class 3 Hunter Chase at Haydock (2m 6f soft) in February, his first run for a year and after wind surgery. He finished 17 lengths clear of second and a further 22 lengths ahead of the rest and should expect a tongue challenge in this contest. Has won on good to soft ground in France and is expected to push favourite, Billaway all the way.

Race 6 (4:15pm) COLREEVY

Three successive wins since placing fifth in The Dawn Run at the Festival last year, including the latest at Thurles (2m 4f, soft to heavy) in a Grade 2 contest, when 12 lengths clear of Mount Ida. She has won a Grade 1 bumper on yielding ground, so conditions shouldn’t be a factor and she has a golden opportunity to make it four on the bounce in this race.
