The first Grade One event of the afternoon is the Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle over three miles and The Nice Guy was emphatic at the Cheltenham festival and we can't see any of these horses reversing that form.
The seven year old has had a very strange season making his rules debut in a bumper in November at Fairyhouse over two miles, when winning easily.
He landed another bumper over Christmas at Leopardstown beating a nice horse in Dorans Weir that has gone on to frank the form.
Stepped up in trip and sent over hurdles, he took to the task well over 2m3f, pulling away from a nice type to win by eight lengths.
Once again, he was last seen stepped up in trip and grade tackling three miles for the first time and he revelled in the distance, seeing off a superb field of 16 in the Grade One Albert Bartlett to win easily again.
Apparently this horse shows very little at home and saves everything for the track and it is hard to see any of these horses reversing the form if in the same mood.
