1.00 Book Easter Festival Tickets Online At fairyhouse.ie Mares Maiden Hurdle 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
135 9. TARA DYLAN Thomas Mullins D. J. Mullins
132p 6. ONE FIRST CUT Miss Elizabeth Doyle Donagh Meyler
97 13. EJAYTEEKAY Gavin Patrick Cromwell R. C. Colgan

Analyst's Verdict:
One First Cut was shaping up well on her hurdles debut before unseating 2 out and can make a bold bid back in in this sphere. Tara Dylan can do better over jumps, as can the useful German Flat winner Mary Sun whose run at Cork was too bad to be true.


1.30 Promote Your Business At Fairyhouse In 2018 Hurdle 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
144p 4. VENEER OF CHARM Gordon Elliott J. W. Kennedy
143 1. MITCHOUKA Gordon Elliott Davy Russell
134 2. MASTERMIND Charles O'Brien Denis O'Regan

Analyst's Verdict:
Veneer of Charm made a pleasing debut over hurdles for Gordon Elliott when winning at Punchestown and can progress for another victory here. C&D winner and stablemate Mitchouka is the obvious danger.


2.05 Fairyhouse Members 2018 Handicap Hurdle 3m

Timeform Top Rated:
146 7. FITZHENRY Paul Nolan Barry Geraghty
145 3. SHANNAK Anthony Mullins P. Townend
142 6. DROMORE LAD Dermot Anthony McLoughlin D. J. Hand (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Fitzhenry looks on an upward curve and is potentially well treated making his handicap hurdle debut. He can strike, though the thriving pair Dromore Lad and Poker Party won't make it easy and will rightfully have their supporters.


2.35 Bar One Racing Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase (Grade A) 2m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
172 7. POLIDAM W. P. Mullins Daryl Jacob
170+ 3. ACAPELLA BOURGEOIS W. P. Mullins P. Townend
168? 1. ROCK THE WORLD Mrs J. Harrington D. J. McInerney (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Polidam didn't fire at Leopardstown over Christmas but the promise of his reappearance defeat of reopposing stablemate Acapella Bourgeois is still fresh in the memory and he's well worth another chance. Doctor Phoenix and Don't Touch It are also shortlisted in a smart contest.


3.05 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Beginners Chase 2m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
144p 7. SATURNAS W. P. Mullins P. Townend
143 2. BRAVISSIMO W. P. Mullins D. J. Mullins
140p 3. DE PLOTTING SHED Gordon Elliott Davy Russell

Analyst's Verdict:
Smart hurdler Saturnas showed plenty to work on making his chase debut after 10 months off when runner-up at Punchestown last month, and with improvement on the cards, he's selected to go one better. De Plotting Shed and Bravissimo look the main threats.


3.35 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Rated Novice Chase 2½m

Timeform Top Rated:
140 2. CLOSE SHAVE Mrs J. Harrington Barry Geraghty
138 5. INIS MEAIN Denis Hogan D. G. Hogan
135x 4. BALLELA BOY Gordon Elliott Davy Russell

Analyst's Verdict:
Close Shave was slightly disappointing in handicap company when last seen in Novmber, but is just about the one to beat on these terms if back on his game. Alto Esqua is back at a more realistic level and is feared most.


4.05 Next Racing At Fairyhouse January 17th (Pro/Am) I.N.H. Flat 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
99p 5. GETAWAY JOHN Gordon Elliott Mr J. J. Codd
98 7. PILOT STATION P. A. Fahy Mr C. Fahy (7)
95 8. THE SHUNTER John O. Clifford Mr S. F. O'Keeffe (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Tornado Flyer makes plenty of appeal on paper being out of a half-sister to her yard's top-class hurdler Hurricane Fly so gets the vote. Getaway John showed plenty on debut 11 months ago, while Dream Conti and Myth Buster are other interesting newcomers.
