Henry De Bromhead could send Monalee to bid for Leopardstown atonement

Tue 16 Jan 2018

Henry de Bromhead will be hoping Monalee can put in a clear round in the Flogas Novice Chase at Leopardstown.

The seven-year-old fell on his most recent start at the Foxrock circuit, but could bid to atone in the February 4 contest.

De Bromhead said: "He schooled this morning and jumped well. He had a horrific fall here at Christmas and then got a good kicking after that."

He added: "We were worried about him for the first few days, but it was amazing how he really seems to have come back to himself.

"We haven't really made any plans as to where we will run him as yet. He's obviously entered at Leopardstown and there are a couple of other options. We just need to make sure that we have him 100 per cent right."

Condon said of the Grade One-winning Shattered Love: "Gordon is unsure whether she'll run at the festival. She's had a couple of quick runs and won here the last day.

"She's a big mare and he's going to give her a bit of time because she had a couple of quick runs.

"She might turn up or might not. She's in good form and came out of the race great the last day."

Al Boum Photo, Jury Duty, Koshari, Invitation Only and Sutton Place are others to consider, with 18 having the option.

The Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown has attracted a bumper 25 entries, many supplied by Willie Mullins and Elliott.

Mullins has the likes of Whiskey Sour, who was a surprise winner of a dramatic Grade One at the track over Christmas, Sharjah, Real Steel and Getabird engaged, while Elliott can choose from Mengli Khan, Hardline and Samcro, although the latter is set to run 24 hours earlier.
