Decent card but not really a punting one to me though Elliot could well run riot.
A couplle of interesting races across the pond this evening as well.
Being a martyr for ultra competitive handicaps Wranglers 7/1(tomorrow) last run is well worth a look,i thought he had no race but finished with a full tank,ground is a bit of a concern maybe a bit of ease would suit but think he looks well handicapped and that last run was so eyecatching.

From the excitement of GALWAY last weekend ALL ROADS LEAD TO Her Majesty's Maze (no, not Long Kesh) this Friday and Saturday

Looks likely that APPLES JADE will take on Ivanovich Gorbatov in Friday's WKD Hurdle.
Elliott - "The plan is she'll run in Friday's WKD Hurdle, though I'm keeping an eye on the ground for a good few of my runners. Also part of my Friday team at the moment I'm thinking of Monbeg Notorious, A Toi Phil and others."


Ruby is set to ride DON POLI for Elliott again in Saturday's JNWine.com Chase (as Copper is out for another two weeks) with 10yo Silviniaco Conti and De Bromhead’s Valseur Lido set to oppose.
While GORDON is the man to watch this weekend (as he bagged a treble on the same card last year) there is the small matter of a THURLES THURSDAY where he also employs the stingy hunt (expect a treble today too).

RACING at The Maze begins at 12.45pm for Friday’s seven race card.

The Final Score: Gordon 4 - Ruby 3.

And a little surprise, shock and disappointment all thrown in with Apples Jade beaten by a super fit ‘good ground’ RASHAAN, Killer Crow 5th (didn’t jump well under pressure - brought down twice recently - but at least completed) and THE STORYTELLER (Elliott/Sloan) who fell for a 'motionless' BJG.

BUT what a day for the ‘auld timers’ with 11yo Powers Gold Cup 2013 winner REALT MOR first past the post for Gordon & Mrs P Sloan (owners, who are big sponsors in Down Royal) with 12yo Shepherd King second and 10yo Coldstonesober a neck back in third.

The four-timer for Elliott comes in at just over 135/1. His other winners today were Monbeg Notorious, Wolfslair, and A Toi Phil. The winning handler said afterwards: "It's a great day - we had four winners. Obviously the one we thought would win (Apple's Jade) got beaten. That's racing, it's a great game.” - think there's more to that STORY line. Devil

ANYways, no doubt the Santa Anita Breeders Cup Meeting on Friday and Saturday nights will also grab the attention ! ...a step up from DUNDALK eh.

Yet another mega Paul Nicholls Saturday - 5up now across the cards.

"Given the prevailing conditions – 3m on good ground around Down Royal – then I think I would have chosen to ride Valseur Lido in the JNwine Champion Chase at 2.35pm.
He wasn’t at his best when we last saw him at Sandown in April but that was at the end of a long, hard season and he had earlier run a cracker when chasing home Vautour in the Ryanair. He can go well when fresh, and I just think conditions will suit him more than Don Poli. He has more speed.

I won on Don Poli first time out at Aintree last season – though he was getting weight from Many Clouds and it was soft ground – and he went on to win the Lexus, and finish third in the Gold Cup. I don’t know how straight he will be today, but he could find others a bit too quick for him here. He’s a genuine Grade 1 horse, though, and one who I obviously have a lot of time for, and I see Gordon has put cheek pieces on him, which is interesting.

Silviniaco Conti could hold the key to this race. If he returns to his best then he is probably the one to beat, and he had physical excuses for a modest campaign last season, that runaway win at Ascot aside. He is the best horse in here on official ratings, and we know how good Paul Nicholls is when bringing horses over to this meeting, but he is a 10yo with something to prove, I guess.

Grand National runner-up The Last Samuri is not out of it on official ratings either – he is only 2lb inferior to Don Poli if you believe the handicapper – and the likes of Monksland, Lord Scoundrel and Sadler’s Risk are all class horses in their own right. But they all have to improve a good deal to win this, and I imagine all roads will lead to Aintree in April for the Last Samuri and that he won’t be hard-fit here.

It is a tricky race to call, but I would probably like to be riding Valseur Lido" - Bryan Cooper.

Revenge for Ruby (from Leopardstown fall)

"The other big race on the card is the Grade 2 chase over an extended 2m3f at 3.05pm, in which Gigginstown have three runners. I would like to be riding Outlander in the race. He won his Grade 1 when beating Monksland at Leopardstown in February and is a very consistent horse, and also a versatile one as regards trip, too.
He ended last season with a second to Zabana over 3m1f at Punchestown, where recent Limerick winner Sub Lieutenant was in behind, but he certainly doesn’t lack pace and I think he has the speed to cope with this step back in trip.
He has a 7lb penalty for his Grade 1 win, as does Zabana who re-opposes here, but I’d still expect him to be competitive. I still had plenty left in the tank when he fell 4 out in the JLT and he is a lovely-moving horse for whom good ground isn’t a problem.
As with Silviniaco Conti, you have to respect what Nicholls sends over, as he has won an amazing seven of the last eight runnings of this race. In fact, Don Cossack and I were responsible for the only defeat for him in that period, in 2014! That record alone makes Le Mercurey a big threat to everyone, and Sub Lieutenant is also bang there on official ratings, too. It’s a good race." - Cooper.

3.20pm Wincanton Roc D’Apsis 9/1 PP up against two of Paul's..."I have won three times on him, and I have been looking forward to riding him in this race all week. He has won on soft ground but he will love this quick surface, and if he comes back to the form of his third to Theatre Guide in the Betbright Chase at Kempton in February then I give him a pretty good chance. He is 3lb lower today, blew away the cobwebs with a run at Hereford last month, and the stable are in great form. There is a lot to like about his chance, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Tom had had this race in mind for him for a while." Paddy Brennan.

When: 05 Nov 16 19:21
I Think the winner of the  maiden hurdle BADS is capable of stepping up in class in the near future , in  a race that was on the short side for him he quickened up well, and is worth keeping on side till beaten , had a look at Don in the paddock ,I know Gordon said he'd need the run, but he looked tight enough to me for his first run , I think he sulked today and I'd be keeping a watching brief till he shows that he hasn't fallen out of love with the game . Crowd look down to me, usually you find it hard to move there but plenty of room to move about today...

Surprising not to see a Sloan runner in DR on DAY 1....Curious Times.
Can't see too many weight in for dave after been beaten/fav 8 times now.

Memories of Apple Jade/Elliott/Ruby 1/2on beaten last year will still be fresh in some minds !
The victor that day, Rashaan, went on to win 5 more and will be next seen in the Morgiana H'dle.

Poli Roi 4/9 Davy
Mystic Theatre 1/2 Ruby
WKD H´dle (Grade 2) Melon 4/7 Ruby (with Coquin Mans 13/2 for another upset).

Cheltenham Champion Bumper winner Envoi Allen could begin his jumping career in the Maiden Hurdle - the FIRST RACE at 12.40pm.
The Elliott inmate, owned by Cheveley Park Stud, won all his four races last term and was sent off a short-priced favourite on every occasion. “The plan is to run at the moment. I think Gordon is happy with him, he’s summered well, so hopefully we can creep away with him and see what happens,” said Cheveley Park Stud’s managing director Chris Richardson. Elliott has also put in Escaria Ten, Fury Road, Multifactorial and Run Wild Fred among a 23-strong entry for the two-and-three-quarter-mile contest.

Elliott is responsible for three of the 11 possibles for the Grade 3 EBF Mares’ Novice Hurdle at 1.10pm. His trio is made up of Ard Abhainn, who has yet to run over hurdles, Fairyhouse maiden hurdle scorer Daylight Katie and Mount Ida, who got off the mark over the smaller obstacles at Galway on Sunday.

The Elliott-trained Coeur Sublime, runner-up in last season’s Triumph Hurdle, is one of nine entries for the Grade Two WKD Hurdle at 1.45pm. The County Meath handler has a second string to his bow in Coko Beach, runner-up in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham in March. Honeysuckle, from the De Bromhead stable, could try to take her 100 per cent record under Rules to five after tasting Grade One success in the mares’ novice hurdle final at Fairyhouse in April.

Samcro could make his debut over fences after a 307-day absence in the near two-and-a-half-mile Beginners Chase at 2.55pm on Friday. The seven-year-old is among 16 entries looked a potential superstar when extending his unbeaten record to seven in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. However, Elliott’s charge suffered a heavy fall in the Punchestown Champion Hurdle that April and ran below par in three starts last season — the latest when fifth in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown’s Christmas meeting. Samcro was subsequently found to be suffering a lung infection, which ultimately ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign. Elliott has also entered Cracking Smart, Milan Native and Dortmund Park while other prospective rivals include Henry de Bromhead’s Grade Two hurdle winner Dommage Pour Toi and Noel Meade’s Trappist Monk.

Samcro has been schooling well at home.  Going well beside the likes of Battleoverdoyen.  He should win tomorrow even though he will be about 75% fit. Black Op was very impressive today which lends well to Samcro.  How did Curtis's go off fav to beat Black Op today?
