Fairyhouse BobbyJo Chase Guide

1. Outlander

Trainer - Gordon Elliott

Jockey - Davy Russell

A chaser that feels as though he has been around forever - has raced four times this year, and was most recently seen finishing last of the four in the Irish Gold Cup field behind Bellshill.

Drops in grade so may find this more his level, but been feeling the heat for some time now - with no win registered in the last eighteen months.

A winner of five chase races including three Grade Ones, so cannot be overall written off.

2. Alpha Des Obeaux

Trainer - Gordon Elliott

Jockey - Jack Kennedy

Ran a cracker in the Goffs Thyestes Handicap at Gowran Park when second to Invitation Only, one of a number of good performances this term.

Drawing a line through his run at the stiff circuit at Tramore on New Years Day - which never looked like it was suiting, he landed Listed Glory at Thurles in November a week after finishing second to Kemboy in the Clonmel Oil Chase.

Gradually reestablishing his best form and can go well here again.

3. Rathvinden

Trainer - Willie Mullins

Jockey -

Presented himself as an out-an-out stayer by winning the four-miler in good style at the Cheltenham Festival last term.

That brought an end to a bad spell of luck when unseating and being brought down in back-to-back contests at Leopardstown.

Yet to be seen this season after his miraculous fourth in the Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown last April, and this contest could be used as a springboard ahead of a crack at the Grand National this spring.

4. Champagne Harmony

Trainer - SJ Mahon

Jockey - Robbie Colgan

Ironic that this 9yo's form guide reads PP-P0P given his name, but that's all there really is to it.

This gelding finished one of his last six races over fences, before making the switch back to hurdles for a couple of tries prior to Christmas.

That did not bring back any spark - practically in-completing in both of those, and after his mediocre pull-up here last time, not much more is really expected here.

5. Pleasant Company

Trainer - Willie Mullins

Jockey -

Staying on the topic of form guide's, incredibly the only number that appears in Pleasant Company's tally is the second that he achieved in last year's Grand National at Aintree.

He won this race this time last year under Ruby Walsh, when just getting the better of Malf Morris' Thunder And Roses - the two finishing miles clear of the rest.

However, two below-par efforts this term, unplacing at Leopardstown and at Gowran in the Thyestes Handicap Chase, and work to do on that evidence.

6. Valseur Lido

Trainer - Henry De Bromhead

Jockey - Rachael Blackmore

Very much a veteran these days alongside Outlander who represents the same ownership.

This horse is similar to the latter in the fact his best times are certainly behind him, but perhaps may still be capable of producing his best.

However, he will need to up his game on his recent efforts, yet to place let-alone win since November of 2016.

Plenty to make up for.

7. Magic Of Light

Trainer - Jessica Harrington

Jockey - Robbie Power

Game mare who has been on top form this term, winning or placing in four of her appearances - all bar one in Britain.

After winning over fences in smart fashion at Newbury, she reverted back to hurdles at Ascot in a Grade Two, where she came out on top against Tom Lacey's Jester Jet who has since come out and finally ended a run of second-placed finishes.

This 8yo was a narrow second at Huntingdon when last seen, and can remain useful with a concrete effort here.
