2:40 – Band Of Outlaws – 3/1 @ William Hill & Coral – Joseph O’Brien looks to hold the key here with last time out winners Konitho and Band Of Outlaws. The former won a juvenile hurdle over C&D on his first start since switching from France. He jumped fluently and looks capable of plenty of improvement. Band Out Outlaws was a useful flat handicapper for the trainer. He built on the promise of his third placed effort on his hurdle debut at Cork back in December when battling onto win at Limerick last time out. He’s another who could turn out to be a useful hurdler.
3:40 – Thereisnodoubt – 7/1 @ William Hill or 13/2 @ Coral – The selection finally broke his maiden tag over hurdles when running out a 9-length winner of a 17 strong handicap hurdle at Clonmel 30-day ago. He had looked a shade unlucky when coming down three out at Thurles, when still travelling well, two starts back. Up 11lb for that Clonmel win demands more from the 6-year-old but he’s an improver and looks capable of following up for a trainer who had a winner at last Weekend’s Dublin Racing Festival.
