We head to Thurles today for our last days racing before Christmas.

We start the day with ESCARIA TEN (pictured) in the beginners chase. He ran a good race to finish 5th behind Monkfish on his chasing debut and it looks as though he may get off the mark today with favourited ground and a step up in trip.

DAKOTA MOIRETTE ran a great race to finish 3rd last time out at Cork under Jack Foley. The partnership are intact again today and we’re hoping for a similar performance in the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Chase.

In the Boomerang.ie Handicap Hurdle we are represented by SAINT D’OROUX. Previously 3rd in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham, he should be capable of winning a nice handicap and we’re hoping to see him finish in the frame today under Jack Kennedy.

FRONTAL ASSAULT runs in the Horse & Jockey Hotel Rated Novice Hurdle. He’s  been placed over hurdles on a couple of occasions but we’re hoping that the addition of cheekpieces and step up in trip will see him break his duck today. Jack Kennedy rides.

Our final runner of the day is PERFECT ATTITUDE in the bumper. He made his racecourse debut at Punchestown in November where he was 6th behind stablemate Hollow Games. He was still a bit green that day and has come on plenty for the run and hopefully will finish a few places better today under Jamie Codd.
