A relatively quiet day for Grand National winning-trainer Gordon Elliott who will saddle just four runners at Tramore on Sunday afternoon...

"The form he showed to be placed in a good novice handicap chase at Naas a couple of runs ago would give him a great chance and I'd say he's our best prospect of the day."

Slightly easier race gives her a big chance

14:15 - Jeremys Dream

She's a grand, honest mare who has run some solid races this season and she looks to be lining up with a realistic chance. This doesn't look as strong a race as some of those she has contested and her last two runs at Downpatrick and Fairyhouse would put her into contention here so hopefully she will be able to give a good account of herself.

Hard to have confidence on current form

14:50 - Acronym

It has turned out to be a very disappointing season for him. He started off really well with two good runs in bumpers and I was very pleased with his first run over hurdles at Punchestown in late November. However, he has lost his way since running poorly at Leopardstown over Christmas and I'm really scratching my head with him. I know he has the ability to win a race like this but his recent form wouldn't suggest that is the case. I'm hoping for the best but it would be hard to be confident the way he is running at the moment.

Ideal race so place prospects at least

15:20 - Load Up Time

Since he has moved into handicaps he has run four solid races and the balance of his form would suggest that he can pick up a handicap at some stage. He seems to handle most types of ground and anything from two and a half miles upwards is suitable for him so this looks an ideal race for him and if he can put his best foot forward he should be able to reach the frame.

Likes the track and solid form gives him a big chance

15:55 - Monatomic

So far this season he has won just once over fences but he has run a number of solid races in defeat too and he has made up into a better chaser than a hurdler. He did win over hurdles at this track last year and he would have won over fences here in the autumn only for falling so we know he likes the track which is a big help. The form he showed to be placed in a good novice handicap chase at Naas a couple of runs ago would give him a great chance and I'd say he's our best prospect of the day.
