Sporting Live 17:30 - Close Brothers Novice Handicap ChaseAll Odds Preview

Chasers carrying the JP McManus colours have a good record in this. Two are decked out in the famous green and gold today and Any Second Now is interesting running in his first handicap as he’s been unlucky to come up twice against Footpad in novice events this season and finished second in the other two. Demi Sang looks held on their latest run together in the Arkle at Leopardstown, though it may not pay to take that form too literally. De Plotting Shed, another Irish raider running in his first handicap, has been popular since the weights were published but connections seem to be struggling to determine his best trip. BARNEY DWAN seems to be finally getting his act together over the larger obstacles and races off the same mark as when second in last year’s Pertemps Final over hurdles here. The going won’t be a problem and he might be the one to beat if the fences don’t get in the way and he has some luck in-running. Rather Be looks a better bet than stablemate Divine Spear but appears to have his fair share of weight compared to the likes of Kayf Adventure and course winner Mister Whitaker. Testify would need another career-best to make the frame but Ballyhill is likely to picking off rivals in the closing stages and shouldn’t be ignored.

Sporting Live 15:30 - Champion Hurdle

Nicky Henderson and Willie Mullins are responsible for eight of the 13 runners in this but it’s difficult to look beyond defending champion BUVEUR D’AIR. He’s had a very smooth preparation, winning all three starts this season in a canter including two Grade 1 races. He’s been all-but unstoppable since suffering his only defeat over hurdles or fences on this day two years ago and it will take an exceptional performance to lower his colours today. Faugheen is his nearest market rival but the 2015 champion is now 10 and has not been at his best in his last two starts when odds-on, though is from two from two around here. He was pulled up behind Mick Jazz at Leopardstown in December, though did turn the tables in the Irish Champion Hurdle last month behind Supasundae. My Tent Or Yours has a fantastic Festival record and has finished second in this in each of the last three years. He gained a well-deserved victory in a Grade 2 here in December - beating Melon, Ch'tibello and John Constable – and will be hard to keep out of the frame again, though was beaten by Wicklow Brave at Punchestown last year. Elgin is much improved but may find a few of these too classy.
