Sire Du Berlais

T: Gordon Elliott
N/A
Age: 10
Weight: 11-12
OR: 155
Days: 199

One of three for trainer Gordon Elliot and none of them can be completely ruled out. He is the oldest horse in the race, but has shown he is still capable of winning races.

Sire Du Berlais managed to get the better of Flooring Porter in the Grade 1 Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree last season, but it looks a tough ask that he will beat him for the second time.

Shortly after that victory, he came fourth of seven other rivals in the Grade 1 Stayers Hurdle at Punchestown, a neck behind Gentlemansgame.

He seemed to keep on at a one pace in the run-in so a bounce back will be needed, but risks come attached due to a 199 day absence.

Gigginstown are represented here by a horse who has notched up two victories in recent times where he won on both occasions at massive prices.

He won at this course last year over 3m at 40/1 and then managed to win at the Cheltenham Festival at 50/1!

Those two wins came in big field handicaps so he may prefer coming up against more horses, but a change in tactics here will see him be in the picture.

Steps back down in trip and one of three to keep an eye on from Gordon Elliot’s yard.

The outsider of the field and one to easily dismiss. He is a triple digit price and has shown nothing to warrant any case being made for him in this level of company.

Has only won twice in 39 career starts too.Impossible to fancy.

Days: 79

Trainer Joseph Patrick O’Brien won this race last year with Darasso, but Home By The Lee looks to have a tough assignment on his hands here.

He has hardly been seen in the last two seasons and did not show much in Grade 1 company when stepping up in Class.

He actually ran out when looking to challenge rivals on last start which was strange so he is capable, but looks somewhat of a tricky ride.

Remains with potential back down to Grade 2 company so cannot be totally ruled out.

Flooring Porter

N/A
Age: 7
Weight: 11-12
OR: 164
Days: 218

Flooring Porter has been such an incredible horse for the Flooring Porter Syndicate over the last few years winning the Stayers’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival twice in the past two renewals.

He beat Thyme Hill by 2 ¾ lengths last festival and was well in command during the last 75 yards or so of the race.He then went to Aintree a month later and went off favourite for the Grade 1 Liverpool Hurdle.

The race may have come a bit too soon after the festival as he was beaten by a rival who he faces again here in Sire Du Berlais by 1 ¾ lengths.

He had every chance of winning this race last year, but unfortunately fell 2 out so he will be looking to bounce back here on what will be his seasonal reappearance.

Goes fairly well fresh and will be a huge threat to others, big player.

Jack Kennedy

Zanahiyr

J: Jack Kennedy
T: Gordon Elliott
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 11-8
OR: 159
Days: 220

This 5 year old son of Nathaniel looks to be trainer Gordon Elliot’s best hope in this year’s race. He has been consistent, but his last win came in 2021. Since then he notched up a hat-trick of second place finishes losing to the Willie Mullins trained Sharjah twice.

In what looked a fairly strong Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle in April, Zanahiyr went off the favourite in a race that included the likes of Epatante, Monmiral, Mcfabulous and Brewin’upastorm.

He fell at the last when leading so that was very unfortunate and he is highly respected on seasonal reappearance. Looks to have a great chance.

N/A
Age: 7
Weight: 11-3
OR: 152
Days: 199

This 7 year old son of Shantou has only three wins from 17 career starts so far, but a case can certainly be made for him here. He has ran with credibility in Grade 2 contests including finishing third of nine at a big price of 33/1 in the Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran Park.

His last time out performance was a good one as he only finished 1 ¼ lengths behind Klassical Dream in the Grade 1 Stayers Hurdle at Punchestown.

If he can run to that level again here after nearly 200 days off the track he will have a great chance. Respected.

N/A

Weight: 11-3
OR: N/A
Days: 201

One of Henry De Bromhead’s stable stars returns to action this weekend which I am sure will please many racegoers across the country.

When talking about this horse it is impossible not to go back to when he won at last year’s Cheltenham Festival in what was a dramatic finish.

The Turners Novices’ Chase was a much anticipated battle between him and Galopin Des Champs and it looked all over for Bob Olinger as his rival that day went clear, but fell at the last meaning he was left clear in the run-in to take home victory.

That was a very fortunate win that day, but he did not back that up next time out when pulling up in the Grade 1 Novice Chase at Punchestown.

There was clearly something amiss on that occasion, but he returns to hurdles for his comeback this campaign and looks to be in much calmer waters albeit up against some top horses.

Has to be highly respected and will be the one to beat back over the smaller obstacles.

Days: 201

Gatsby Grey somehow managed to finish second at odds of 100/1 in the Grade 1 Novice Hurdle at Punchestown in April, but that was one of those results that sometimes just happens and is a total fluke.

Prior to that, he showed nothing in Grade 3 company so this looks to be a tough race for him and is one for future races considering he is only 6 years of age.
