The Racing TV betting expert will be in the studio to enjoy Saturday's action from Thurles on the channel and has three selections for the meeting.
This is a seriously competitive novice chase, but I believe this six-year-old could be a strong bet to concede weight all round. His chase form is far better than that he achieved over hurdles, largely down to some very proficient jumping.
He has already beaten the useful Cut The Mustard in very good style and should easily confirm that form. Significantly, he looks likely to be able to dominate from the front here. If he gets into a rhythm similar to his last two runs, he will put his rivals’ jumping under severe pressure.
A big-field handicap with one or two likely plots in the mix, but they will have to turn up to beat this rapidly-improving young chaser who has won her last two in good style.
Her last two runs have revealed an improved jumping technique, which may have been worked upon - if so, she has clearly benefitted. She has invariably been ridden by a claimer in the past but seems to have struck up a very strong relationship with Ryan Treacy and hopefully can at least make the frame here for each-way supporters.
Max Dynamite looks a horse to take on these days but he will hopefully make the market to some extent here and provided Myth Buster has not been put off by being overfaced in a Grade One last time, he has a good chance to score.
There is no Faugheen in this line-up and hopefully his jumping will not be put under serious pressure this afternoon. Henry de Bromhead’s record in this type of event is simply outstanding in recent seasons.
