Rachael Blackmore: I'm very happy with Easy Fella

Rachael has two runners at Thurles on Sunday

Betfair ambassador Rachael Blackmore previews her two Sunday runners at Thurles and indicates that both have a good chance...

Thurles 13:35 - Envoi Allen (NON-RUNNER)

I'm looking forward to riding Envoi Allen in the Horse and Jockey Hotel Chase.

He ran a big race in the Champion Chase at Down Royal last time, he just didn't come out the right side of it. This is obviously another high-class race, and we have to give weight away to all our rivals, but he came out of the Down Royal race very well and we're very much looking forward to him. He's in really good order at home. We couldn't be happier with him.

14:45 - Easy Fella

We were very happy with Easy Fella the last day, he won well over this course and distance. He stayed on strongly to beat Mint Boy, the two of us clear, and Mint Boy came out at Fairyhouse on Saturday and was impressive in winning a competitive handicap hurdle.

This is going to be tough, High Class Hero continues to improve, but Easy Fella is in good form at home. He is a real stayer, and we're hoping he can run well again.
