Fairyhouse provides a decent Irish card on Sunday...

The Grade 3 Solerina Mares' Novice Hurdle (13:20) revolves around Gitane du Berlais, who bolted up in a listed contest at Aintree last time and should take some stopping on that evidence, especially given she receives weight all round. Stable-companion Vicky de L'Oasis looks the main threat on form, and Romantic Fashion can stay on into a place.
The Grade A handicap chase named in honour of Dan Moore (14:20) is, as you'd expect, a wide-open one, though Davy Russell gets on well with Lastoftheleaders and the partnership that was successful in this event last year (at Punchestown) is reunited here. Perfect Smile and may be the one to chase him home.
The following maiden chase (14:50) looks a match on paper between Grand Jesture and Hit The Headlines. The latter has the edge on form, but testing conditions could swing it in Grand Jesture's favour with his stamina being beyond question even in the mud. Vino Vino Cavo can chase the pair home.
