"She looked a potentially useful chaser that day and a mark of 123 may well underestimate her ability."

Timeform on Feeling the Love

Blenheim Palace - 17:10 Killarney

BLENHEIM PALACE sets a clear standard on this drop in grade for him and with the presence of two non-runners, his task has been made considerably easier. He has been placed in Group 3 company and now taking on a much lower calibre of opposition, he can waste no time in getting his head in front for the first time since April. He should make no mistake here and bring up Aiden O'Brien's fourth win in six years in this contest.

Millswyn - 18:10 Killarney

MILLSWYN was shortlisted as a horse to be interested in off the back of his latest run at Galway and can make up for that luckless effort with a win here. He was equipped with first time blinkers that day and they helped him shape extremely well. He had to wait for a gap from three furlongs out and as a result, was forced wide and bumped in the process. That promised that his turn to win was near and despite the 5 lb rise for that performance, the longer trip can bring about extra improvement to see him finish with his head in front.

Feeling the Love - 18:40 Killarney

Jumps take the focus for the second half of Killarney's card this evening and J.P McManus is mob handed in the chase handicap. His strongest chance looks to be with FEELING THE LOVE on chase handicap debut for Jessica Harrington. Her two starts over fences have seen her finish sixth before she posted an improved performance to get off the mark at Tipperary last time. She looked a potentially useful chaser that day and a mark of 123 may well underestimate her ability. She can take this contest on her way to more valuable prizes over the coming winter.
