Weekend Preview | Tyrella 25th January

Race 1 - Albert Bartlett 5yo Mares Maiden

WHERES BUNNY has had the misfortune of parting company with her rider in each of her two outings to date, including most recently when coming down late at Borris House when destined to make the frame in an effort which would leave her as a leading contender for this.

Aprils Joy went close on Good ground at Loughanmore in the spring, before failing to make much of an impression under rules during the summer. Having changed stables since her last outing, she is sure to be of interest back between the flags. Of the others, Tango Theatre took a step forward at Borris before Christmas and is progressing.

Race 2 - Armstrong Auctions 5yo Geldings Maiden

IL COURRA stayed on strongly when coming from off the pace to finish third at Lingstown on his debut in November and it may not take much further improvement to get his head in front here.

The Dara Man would look the big danger as he was something of an eye-catcher on his competitive bow at Kirkistown, whilst Here We Have It was only denied by a head in a four-year-old maiden in Mainstown before Christmas, and will be looking to put right his early exit at Dromahane on his only subsequent start, alongside Ballycrystal runner-up Tommys Oscar.

Race 3 - G. Curran & Co Ltd - Accountants Winner Of Two
LIKE A DEMON has struggled to make an impact in the Cross Country and Hunter Chase sphere of late, but he was only narrowly denied on his latest outing in the pointing fields at Dowth Hall back in October and should be at home in this company.

The consistent The Bolder Boy gained a deserved victory at Loughanmore in the autumn before posting a solid effort at Tinahely in what was his first outing in winners company, whilst Well Bill has plenty of experience in this grade and he has changed yards since finishing fifth at Loughrea.

Race 4 - Patrick Turley Kingsfield Stables Open

This race has attracted a top class entry featuring many of the leading hunter chasers and open performers of late, including last seasons Aintree Foxhunters runner-up Burning Ambition, who will be out to make amends for his mid-race departure at Down Royal over Christmas.

The fourth and fifth from that race, Val De Ferbet and Coastal Tiep, are other leading hunter chasers who could clash against the hat-trick seeking Eddies Miracle. He won his second race of the season in a big-field open at Borris House before Christmas, whilst Chosen Dream, who has course winning form from around here in 2014, and track recruit, Tycoon Prince, who was placed in Graded company as recently as last February, are other potential contenders.

Race 5 - Irish National Steeplechase Committee 6yo+ Mares Maiden

Cormac Farrell could hold many of the aces at this fixture, as his SHANAVOUN LADY brings the strongest form into this contest, courtesy of her fine second at Borris House before Christmas, a race which received a timely form boost when the fifth ran out a wide-margin winner at Ballycrystal just last Sunday.

Ballindenisk runner-up Rachels Surprise could be the danger if bouncing back from her final-fence fall at Tinahely earlier in the month, whilst Milan Diva is a horse that has shown promise in the past and could enter the equation if recapturing some of her best following an interrupted spell under rules.

Race 6 - F. S. Herron 6yo+ Geldings Maiden

MILANFORD could be set for a quick re-appearance as he bumped into an above-average older maiden winner at Ballycrystal last Sunday. He has been knocking on the door for a long time, and it would not be a surprise to see him take this.

His former stablemate Duckphil has gone close in each of his three outings since joining a new yard, but he has not run since March, whilst other contenders such as Choctaw Brave and Airdrigh have more recent efforts to their names.
