Thurles 22nd January

Allegorie De Vassy (Paul) goes for the mares novice chase over 2m 4f. She won a novice chase in impressive fashion on her chasing debut at Limerick at Christmas and with that experience under her belt she looks the one to beat here. She is in good form at home and we will be disappointed if she doesn’t make it two from two over fences today.

We run three in the Grade 2 Chase over 2m 4f. Chacun Pour Soi (Paul) made a bad mistake at the second last when third to Blue Lord at Christmas. He would have been right there only for that mistake and we are expecting him to run a big race today. Royal Rendezvous (Danny) will love this track and ground and is not without a chance should either of the two principals fluff their lines. Haut En Couleurs (Sean O’Keeffe) will find this very difficult but should gain some valuable experience.

Embassy Gardens (Paul) runs in the W T O’Grady Memorial Novice Hurdle over 2m 7f. He was fourth over 2m 4f at Leopardstown last time and we think this longer trip will be a big benefit. We are hoping for the best.

Billaway (Patrick) goes for the hunters chase over 3 miles. He was second in this race last year and won his next three with cheek pieces fitted. He will have cheek pieces again today and we think they make a big difference to him. He has been working well at home and we will be disappointed if he’s not in the shake-up.
