Paul Townend’s decision to ride Queen Carrigmoorna of the three runners trained by Willie Mullins is significant in the opener at Listowel (2.35) and she looks sure to come close.
Tinder Dan is a strong fancy in the next first 2m hurdle (3.05). He should improve a lot for an encouraging start over hurdles in an event in decent conditions last time out.
My two in the Haie Lartigue (3.35) are Man O Workwho looks well treated on his debut with a handicap considering what he achieved in the juvenile hurdles last season, and Lunar Powerwho is fit and has performed well in the Graded society on several occasions.
The coherent Sequoiaspirit is the strong favorite in the competitive 2m (4.05) handicap hurdle. He deserves a first victory over hurdles.
Benny of Snugsborough is handicapped to close in the next (4.35) and bounced back to form recently, while She Perfecta ran well in a Listed last time and is going in the right direction for Colm Murphy.
The final Placepot race, the Rookie Pursuit (5.05), sees an intriguing clash between Categorically chosen and Great King. The preference goes to the first, which benefits from a recent run and seems better suited for this trip.
