Action in Ireland tomorrow also takes place in Down Royal where the feature race is the Daily Mirror Steeplechase at 3:20. Racing commences at 1:40.
Pyrus Gold Wind was in the process of running a nice race at Navan last time out and was set to finish second to a smart type in Mad Brian when falling. A repeat of that effort should be good enough to take this much weaker event, the Daily Mirror Maiden Hurdle at 1:40. Quick Jack who comes from an inform yard could cause the major problems to the selection.
Grade One winning hurdler Shinrock Paddy finally has a good opportunity to break his duck over the larger obstacles in the Bet with the Tote Beginners Steeplechase at 2:45. He hasn’t hit the same heights over fences but this is a significantly easier task than he has faced to date. He hold Benash on form who could pose the biggest threat.
Chicago Grey looks to have hit form as he aims to take the Daily Mirror Steeplechase at 3:20. He has to give weight to all of his rivals but his most recent win in Grade Two company was very encouraging and he should be hard to beat. Bob Lingo if in form could cause the biggest danger to Elliots charge.
The Dessie Hughes Chasing Shadows was an impressive winner of a maiden hurdle at Tramore in December, she pulled up in two chase starts thereafter but she looked back in form when second to Carrig Millie at Thurles last month. There could be more improvement expected to come from her over fences and she can see off the likely strong challenges of Royal Sam and Stradbally.
Lots of Memories has been placed in all 4 starts in bumpers and this doesn’t look a strong contest and he’s sure to be in the mix again in the Winged Love Flat Race 4:55. Now I Win Again showed promise on her debut in a Fairyhouse bumper last month and, with the third since franking the form, she looks like the one that they all have to beat here.
