IRISH jump racing returned this Tuesday at Fairyhouse, but with glue-pot conditions and the slowest going allowance (445 on my scale when anything over 450 usually gets called off) at the course in recent times.

That, combined with a strong pace, meant that all three runners were out on their feet late on in the two-mile hurdle, Sizing Pottsie about 10 lengths clear but coming back when falling heavily at the last.
