1:05 Cavan Developments Supporting Kill GAA Handicap Chase 2m 4f
Valdieu is taken to score here on his handicap debut. Noel Meade’s seven-year-old has struggled to land a blow in his three beginners chase starts but did show a glimpse of promise when chasing home Dunvegan on his penultimate start at Punchestown. More significantly, he was a useful novice hurdler around this time last year when the ground was quicker than it has been for his three runs this season. He actually won at this course and with the ground drying up again he is taken to find the improvement. First-time cheekpieces can also help him.
