Gowran 26th January

We have three runners and two reserves in the Thyestes Handicap Chase over 3m 1f. Carefully Selected (Paul) ran a good race in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown at Christmas and if he has improved from that he has a live chance in what looks like an open race. Egality Mans (Sean O’Keeffe) was disappointing in the Paddy Power and has to show better form if he is to figure here. Captain Kangaroo (Kieran Callaghan) fell in the Paddy Power but with his rider’s 7lb claim he has an each-way chance off this weight. Rambranlt’jac (Brian Hayes) is first reserve. He was disappointing at Navan last time but a mistake at the first put him further back than we wanted. If he can keep his jumping together he could go well. Stones And Roses (Jack Foley) is second reserve. He disappointed after a long break in the Paddy Power. Maybe a race of a lesser standard would be more his cup of tea.

Sir Gerhard (Paul) makes his chasing debut in the 2 mile beginners chase. He had a little setback but has been in good form at home recently. He jumps very well at home and granted a clear round he should easily have the measure of these rivals.
