1.40 Wexford Racecourse Mares Maiden Hurdle 2m 4f

Time For Tea sets the standard on the strength of her Down Royal run at Christmas. However, having been pulled up when last seen in January, the Henry de Bromhead-trained mare has questions to answer. Despite those doubts, the five-year-old looks the most likely winner, if returning to anything like her best form over flights.

The well-bred Shaving showed little in three bumpers, including when sixth at this track last time. Perhaps the Willie Mullins-trained mare can do better now her attention is switching to hurdling.

Handicap Hurdle 2m 4f

Lovely Reaction was impressive when winning over this trip at Leopardstown in March before finishing third over three miles at Cork after. Given how easily the six-year-old travelled in her previous race, she may well not have stayed the latter distance. Back over what is arguably her best trip, the J.P. McManus-owned mare can resume winning ways.

Bonnie Kellie is very well handicapped over hurdles relative to her chase mark. While it is quite possible that the Sam Curling-trained mare is just better over fences, any market support could be significant.

2.50 Ambrex Switchgear Handicap Hurdle (Div l) 2m 1f 55yds

Chosen Shant, who reached the frame in handicap hurdles at Naas on her last three starts, should go close. Although a 22-race maiden, the Ciaran Murphy-trained mare has certainly been knocking on the door of late and should eventually get her turn. A slight concern would be that she has a tendency to be untidy at her hurdles.

Diamond Dollar showed promise when mid-division at Limerick over Christmas but has yet to improve on that effort. The five-year-old is one of the more lightly raced, unexposed runners in this race.

3.25 Ambrex Switchgear Handicap Hurdle (Div ll) 2m 1f 55yds

Although yet to win from 12 attempts, Papa Barns has been running consistently in similar races of late. Trained by Tom Dreaper, the seven-year-old ran better than his final placing suggests when eighth at Naas recently. Given slight improvement, the son of Mustameet can finally get his head in front for the first time under rules.

Breagagh is winless from 46 starts but has caught the eye a number of times, both over hurdles and on the flat. Although he will almost certainly find at least one too good, the six-year-old should be involved at the finish.

4.00 Support The Irish Injured Jockeys Fund Handicap Hurdle 3m 50yds

Tranquil Sea, who appeared to appreciate stepping up in trip, was just denied over course and distance last month. The Paul Nolan-trained four-year-old had taken time to warm to jumping on his initial starts but, finding everything happening at bit slower upped to three miles, he was much more proficient before staying on well close home.

Point-to-point winner Cloudy Fountain got off the mark under rules when scoring at Thurles in March. If ready after a short break, the Liam Burke-trained mare can make her presence felt.

4.35 Poolcourt Novice Chase 2m

Having made a winning debut over fences at Down Royal recently, the Gordon Elliott-trained Magic Tricks can follow up here. A smart handicap hurdler who attained a rating of 143 in that sphere, the J.P. McManus-owned gelding impressed with the manner of his victory at the first time of asking over the larger obstacles.

Dreal Deal also won his initial race over fences at the northern track before running well in a strong handicap at Punchestown subsequently. The experience of that latter contest will stand to him back in novice company.

5.10 T.C. Cullen Memorial

Handicap Chase 3m 1f 50yds

Brought down two out when still in contention at Leopardstown in March, Pictures Of Home can get back on the winning trail here. Ted Walsh’s gelding had won over hurdles at Fairyhouse earlier in the campaign and is able to race off a lower rating in chases. With just the five starts over fences, the gelding has scope for further improvement.

Fox Le Bel has yet to taste success under either code but ran one of his better races when runner-up at Tipperary last month.

Liz Doyle’s nine-year-old should go close under Aidan Kelly.

The Willie Mullins-trained Lady Gooner can make it third time lucky. Runner-up on her debut at Thurles in February, the mare ran too bad to be true when disappointing at Limerick next time. Given time to recover since that latter race, the five-year-old should be amongst the leading contenders in this ordinary affair.

Amanha, who was just beaten over this course and distance last month, should be a serious threat under Finny Maguire.

The Dermot McLoughlin-trained mare arguably sets the standard on that performance.
