Thurles:

We begin the day with DE PLOTTING SHED in the Rated Novice Steeplechase. He is yet to get off the mark over fences but seems to be in great form at home and it would be nice to see him sneak into the frame. Keith Donoghue rides.

MRS LOVETT is already a course winner here and she takes her chance in the “Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Novice Steeplechase”. She carries top weight but looks the one to beat. Jack Kennedy is on board.

In the feature of the day SATOSHI is our only representitive. He steps back in trip and has shown he is more than capable of landing a big pot at somestage, Jack Kennedy is in the saddle.

INVINCIBLE CAVE lines up in the 3m Maiden Hurdle, he has been slightly disappointing and with blinkers fitted again we hope he can rekindle his past form, Jack Kennedy rides.

MONITION steps up to 3m today in the “Thurles Handicap Hurdle” and hopefully he can be at his best and get his head in front, Jack Kennedy rides.

In The Lady Riders Handicap Hurdle we have SERIOUS EGO taking his chance, he carries top weight but should be more than capable of finishing in the frame, Lisa O’Neill takes the ride.

Finally we have two runners lining up in the mares bumper, LADY V who carries a hood for the first time, she returns from a break and she has the assistance of Lisa O’Neill. LADY OF ELYSIUM should have improved for her first run and she has Patrick Mullins back in the saddle.

In the feature of the day the Listed Mares Hurdle we have LACKEEN LEADER, she was disappointing on her lastest run and reverts back to hurdles today. A previous Grade 3 winner she lines up in a competitive field but has more than enough ability to be in the frame, Jack Kennedy rides.
