Despite his welter burden, Tom Taaffe's charge looks to have an excellent chance on the form that saw him finish third to Patsy Hall in a well contested handicap at Leopardstown in January and a close fourth to Roadmaker
at Punchestown last month.
, winner of his maiden on the track in March before landing a competitive handicap at Punchestown, looks the stand-out bet on the mixed card at Downpatrick.
Carberry scored again in the next for a 314-1 brace when bringing John Carr's 20-1 shot Roadmaker
from off the pace to win the three-mile Chronicle Handicap Hurdle.
But the one I like is the Liam Burke-trained Sir Frederick, a dual-winner over hurdles, which ran creditably under a big weight in the three-mile handicap hurdle won by Roadmaker
John Carr paid a flying visit to the meeting, arriving by helicopter to see his Roadmaker
justify favouritism in the opening two-and-a-quarter-mile maiden hurdle under Philip Carberry.
Willie Mullins' five-year-old finished two lengths behind Roadmaker
when a well-beaten third at Tralee early last month yet he slammed that horse by eight lengths when winning in great style at Bellewstown.
