Point-to-point winner on soft ground at Tinahely in January and ran well on first rules start for this yard when finishing runner-up at Fairyhouse (2m, heavy) the following month. One to note in this contest.

Successful over hurdles at Clonmel last June but disappointing since returning from a break. Worth a check in the market on today's chase debut.

Betting

Forecast

Artic Pearl (3/1), Dawn In The Park (4/1), Charlie's Charm (5/1), Skellig Rocks (13/2), Dallas Cowboy (13/2), Bold Sky (8/1), El Vasco (12/1), Georges Conn (12/1), Iusetaluvheronce (14/1), Two In One (20/1), Mister Butler (33/1)

Verdict

Point-to-point winner BOLD SKY can register a first chase success at the second time of asking in this beginners chase. Gordon Elliott's charge ran well to finish runner-up on just her second start over fences and she can get the better of fellow mare Dawn In The Park who makes her chase debut today. Artic Pearl ran well at Tramore last time out and he can finish third.
