Both tracks doing their bit to allow us get the Xmas expences.Thurles looks as if it'll be my destination tomorrow,and too get the ball rolling its ,
Keppols Queen , this mare has been showing up well in  Beg Chases last month.Her experience over fences gets her the vote.Royal Caviar jumping has to be taken on trust ,and at 8 and having only had 10 runs in his life its obvious that all has not been right with him.Shattered Love is also of interest ,She has been improving with racing and is taken to beat the odds on Asthuria, who ran a cracker when third behind Jers Girl , the drop in trip is the worry.
Minds Eye looked all over the winner the last day till running green and letting the winner back up. Sure to come on for that and should do the business in the last.
Navan I take Death Duty to turn over Invitation Only, I was not impressed with this fellows jumping at Gowran and I think Death can give him the 3lb and a beating.
Good luck all punters..

Mick The Jiver should be a 2/1 shot in Thurles!!

2 nice meetings.
I haven't been impressed with the way Keppols Queen finished her last couple of races,though she should hold Sizing Network again,with a layoff and 1st time chasing won't want a touch of odds on despite the obvious form with RC either,the rest look very average.
Asthuria should win,think she will make all,1/2 isn't much good.
Love Death Duty,Elliot thinks the world of him but says he expects it as a chaser,good test and is 13/8 in what looks a match.
Bull Ride for Elliot/Giggy is another i've been impressed with.
Gurteen and Capture the Drama(BWS standing behind me with a scythe) be my 4 today, wins and a yankee.
Best of luck

I'm looking forward to watching Joey Sasa in the first race, probably not a betting proposition though. His 2 bumper wins have been very impressive this year and the form has worked out great. He ran well on his hurdles debut lto also and Meade's can often improve a lot for their first go over flights. Hopefully Joey Sasa puts up a big performance today and could be a candidate for some if the good novice races throughout the year.

Long time since i seen Ruby Walsh ride a horse like Madurai,it mightn't be up to a lot but there was no way that was winning today,a shocking ride at best.

JEEZ WHATEVER ELLIOTS IS DOING HAS MADE  OLEARYS STABLE  SWITCH LOOKING LIKE DECENT DECISION

IS THERE TWO BETTER BUMPERS JOCKEYS RIDING THAT VINNY MAGUIRE AND THE SUPERB P2P CHAMP JAMIE CODD ?

AND GREAT SEE JPS HORSES WINNING AS HE SUPPORTS LOADS TRAINORS  AND IS GENTLEMAN ALWAYS FIRST CONGRATULATE OTHER WINNERS

AND FANTASTIC  TO SEE  BRYAN COOPER BACK TO HIS BEST AFTER COUPLE REAL BAD INJURYS FOR YOUNG  LAD RIDING FOR tough OWNERS NO DOUBT RUBY /BARRY  G /DAVY R /MARK WALSH  WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE  5 OFF THE TOP SIX JOCKETS RIDING IN IRELAND  . MAY THEY ALL HAVE GREAT XMAS AND STAY SAFE AS IT TRULY IS A VERY DANGEROUS JOB AS THINK LOTS FORGET THAT AMBULANCE FOLLOWS THEM EVERY RIDE .

Thurles was its usual self, genuine racing fans,plenty of watchers around the parade ring. Backed Teachers Pet @ 11/8 have to to say the way the market went I thought I'd done my pieces of silver,she won really well, it makes Noels BADS look a right good horse and well worth following till he's beat.Heard Kenneddy say to a reporter he was going very well and would have given Willes a real fright if that one had stood up.

Not often a 200 to 1 shot wins....must be a record for Irish racing ???

Killahara Castle is now a ‘listed’ mare winner !

That RHINESTONE is no cowboy - did it well - and with Mullins making the trip to Thurles for the ride on a well fancied money on shot - maybe a goodun - roll on Cheltenham bumper Devil

Wouldn't you be as sick as a small hospital if you put your fiver on Killahara Castle on the Tote and got 205.50 Euro back instead of a 1000 Euro.

Sick enough tks after True Self beaten by a 200/1 shot ffs
Report workrider December 18, 2017 6:38 PM GMT
I'd say the whole family had their fiver's on, hence the tote return.
