Leopardstown Sunday Racing Preview

14:00 Barrington Court

Leopardstown host the best of the racing on Sunday and we have a through the card preview with five big fancies on the day and we start in the Mares Novice Hurdle.

Barrington Court for Jessica Harrington looks the one to beat off the back of what she's done this season finishing third on her seasonal debut at Listowel in a bigger 18 runner event.

She used that experience to progress nicely and land another big fielded contest at Punchestown in heavy conditions and that looks the best bit of form on offer.

14:30 - Jon Snow

A Maiden Hurdle comes next and Jon Snow for Willie Mullins has been a horse we have been fond of all season but he has been frustrating and surely has to be close to getting off the mark.

The five year old started his career last season over in France on the flat racing three times, finishing eighth on his debut at Chantilly then using that experience to come a better fourth at Compiegne.

On his final start back in May he got off the mark when stepped up in trip to 1 mile 4f on his first run on good ground.

Off the back of his three runs in France, Rich Ricci bought the gelding like he has done before and gave him for Mullins where he has placed in all three of his events.

He has looked like the races were there to be won but not being able to finish them off always stuttering at the last fence has seen him not break his maiden yet.

He will be in the mix again and hopefully Sunday is his day.

15:05 - Mengli Khan

A horse that has well and truly fell out of love with the sport is Mengli Khan for Gigginstown and Gordon Elliott but now back in a weak hurdle contest he can get back to his best.

The seven year old back in 2017 and 2018 was a star winning a Graded contest over hurdles in Ireland whilst also finishing a close third in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival.

Since then he has fell off the boil being tried over fences and just looking out of sorts all together, however now back of hurdles he is starting to regain his form.

He was third last time out in a decent Grade Three at Gowran behind two very smart athletes and if coming on for that will be in the mix again in a lesser race.

16:40 - Anibale Fly

One of the feature events of the day at Leopardstown on Sunday is the Grade B Handicap Chase over two miles five furlongs and the JP McManus owned Anibale Fly looks the class act on show.

The 10 year old has had an illustrious career over marathon trips finishing a staying on second in last seasons Gold Cup and also a good fifth in the Grand National.

However, this term he has been less than impressive tailing off in races he was performing well in last season and now dropped back in class he can get his confidence back in check.

15:10 - Homme D'un Soir

The final runner of the afternoon over in Ireland is a decent two mile bumper and Homme D'un Soir for Gordon Elliott will take some beating.

The four year old for Simon Munir and Isaac Souede started his career for the yard in a bumper at Gowran and won very nicely looking like a decent talent.

Jamie Codd sits on board which is also a positive and being the only horse to actually win a race in the field makes him the one to beat.
