Not going mad today but one of my mates is going up and asked me to have a look at the card so I may as well stick them up here for the craic too. Actually going out for a few pints to watch it (can't wait)- will be going up later this week too with the missus:
12.20 – Will be keeping an eye on SO YOUNG just to see how it races but won’t be having a b...et.
12.55 – Tadgh is expected to go well but MARLAY PARK ticks the right boxes for me at an each-way price.
1.25 – I know they have high hopes for Thegreatjohnbrowne but it’s a bit short in price. CHICAGO GREY ran well at Cheltenham so should be able handle this and looks the value bet.
2.00 – He’ll probably be a short enough favourite but MOURAD is the one to beat here. Ran some classy races last season but the only worry is the distance – he normally runs in 2mile 4furling or 2mile 5furlong races. This could be testing at 3mile but hopefully he has the class to see it through.
2.35 – The obvious one is Cooldine from the Willie Mullins yard who likes this ground. However, JONCOL should be a better price as he was poor last time out. The distance was wrong on that occasion so I’m going to forgive him and take a chance.
3.10 – A tricky wide open race. Get your pin out. I’m taking a chance on two each way, Action Master and Slievedaragh, both of which should be double figure prices.
3.40 – Trabajo hasn’t raced before but has a good pedigree. Heard a whisper for Star Neuville although Champagne Agent is the one to beat as Mullins has a great record in these races. Won’t be having a bet in this one
