The first race of the Dublin Racing Festival is the Grade One Nathaniel Lacy & Partners Solicitors "50,000 Cheltenham Bonus For Stable Staff" Nov Hurdle and we have a strong fancy to start the day.
The six year old Hollow Games for Gordon Elliott lost his unbeaten streak last time out but we believe he can get back to winning ways in this one.
He was bought by the well known Bective Stud after absolutely bolting up in a three mile point to point at Turtulla in Ireland.
Fetching £255,000, he was given to Elliott and was first seen in a bumper at Punchestown over two miles and he hosed up by seven lengths.
The son of Beat Hollow was then sent to Leopardstown over Christmas when making it back to back wins, seeing off a nice type for Willie Mullins.
Sent hurdling this term he has been seen three times winning his first two events in good style, firstly at Down Royal and then in Grade Three company at Navan.
Last time out he stepped up to Grade One company in the Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle and was well beaten by stablemate Ginto.
He hit traffic in running that day and stayed on well to finish third and the longer trip should suit massively.
