AMERICAN TOM (Willie Mullins) Has had a kind of Lord Lucan existence in recent years, but on the rare occasions when sighted he has hinted at some ability. His trainer will find a suitable race over two miles at a left handed track, possibly at a high enough level.
BORAGH STEPS (Joseph O’Brien) The Footstepsinthesand filly toughed it out well when winning over six furlongs at Dundalk. She should get seven, and might be one to watch when the turf season kicks off at Naas in March.
DINARIA DES OBEAUX (Gordon Elliott) While taking on geldings at Grade One level is perhaps beyond her, she is a very sharp operator against her own sex. Won’t go to Cheltenham, but will be a force to be reckoned with in all the big mares races on the big days at Fairyhouse, Leopardstown and Punchestown.
EDENE D’ARC (Gordon Elliott) Not the main stable fancy but stunned her trainer when taking the bumper at Gowran Park on Thursday. “Remarkable, only her second piece of real work and her first time on grass” said a surprised but delighted Elliott.
MILES TO MEMPHIS (Denise Foster) Just failed to concede 8 lbs. to the equally brave Hareth at Navan in a Grade B Handicap Hurdle. Well proven on the flat and ground versatile – always a big plus in Ireland – so he should more than pay his way.
PETE SO HIGH (Gordon Elliott) Supporters of Elliott stable could hardly have believed the 7/1 price at Thurles last Sunday, but just how Jetez was a 5/4 jolly on ground he hated and over a trip too short is a total mystery. Not that this horse was in love with the truly awful ground either mind, but he just about coped and had the form in the book to win this.
WOODLAND OPERA (Jessica Harrington) Would probably find A Toi Phil hard to deal with under any circumstances, but a return to two miles and better ground next time should see him regain winning ways.
