Reality To File thrashed Zanahiyr over Christmas by 17 lengths, and over C&D. He appears primed to go to the Turner’s, whereas stablemate Gaelic Warrior doesn’t.

Grangeclare West is one who has been ignored within the discipline after profitable a Grade One is a high-quality discipline. While his vacation spot could also be over additional, he gained’t thoughts stepping again in journey and 9/2 (BetVictor, Boylesports) is much too massive.

1:50 – Tattersalls Novice Hurdle (Grade One) – Farren Glory @ 18/5 (BetVictor)

If it hadn’t been for a heavy fall on the second final, Farren Glory would have blitzed the sector within the Formby Novices’ Hurdle. The shape is obvious that he wouldn’t have crushed a lot after Florida Goals upset at Musselburgh yesterday. He’s nonetheless a Grade One winner all in all and Ballyburn did present a chink in his armour on debut, and likewise didn’t beat a lot in a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown.

3:20 – Leopardstown Handicap Chase (Grade Three) – Inothewayurthinkin @ 6/1 (Basic)

Inothewayurthinkin brings loads of high quality type to the desk on this race. A novice nonetheless, he’s completed behind Gaelic Warrior twice. He’s barely up in distance, which gained’t hassle him in any respect. His first handicap mark is beneficiant sufficient and may make a huge impact in an enormous handicap.

Coronary heart Wooden additionally has standout novice type, together with ending behind Grangeclare West earlier than he backed it up in a Grade One. With that kind of type, and never being crushed that far behind Grangeclare West, the handicapper took under consideration his earlier run when less than it in opposition to Blood Future. He’ll deal with the journey and is generously priced at 8/1 (Basic).

Lucid Goals might run an enormous race, over an untried journey for John Patrick Ryan. He ran an important race behind Uncle Phil within the Dan & Joan Moore and confirmed indicators of staying potential. It’s an enormous ask and an enormous hike in distance, however his final win was comfy over two-and-a-half miles and may recreate that profitable feeling below an excellent claiming journey. On the drift, nonetheless, now 22/1 (William Hill).

3:35 – Scottish Champion Chase (H’cap Chase) – Thunder Rock @7/2 (William Hill)

There’s little doubt Gavin Sheehan has had the season of his life. A number of massive race wins has simply proven how proficient a jockey he actually is. It’s probably why Max McNeil and Olly Murphy have chosen him to half with Thunder Rock, with Sean Bowen again to driving on Monday and Adrian Heskin over in Eire. After disappointing within the Paddy Energy Gold Cup, he’s again in a ‘lesser’ race the place he doesn’t carry high weight and provides him a combating likelihood.

And it wouldn’t be Musselburgh with out Scottish-trained winners. Lucinda Russell and Derek Fox are the leaders of their respective championships on the monitor and saddle Corrigeen Rock. He completed second on New Yr’s Day over two-and-a-half miles and the step again in journey off a pound larger mark, however there appears to be loads of enchancment from him. Beneficiant at 15/2 (Basic).

The easiest of luck!
