Race 7

17.30 – Champion Bumper: Fact to File (Ruby Walsh, 4/1)

Walsh has tipped Fact to File for the final race of the day.

“Ground, age, stamina, and those kinds of things have kicked into this decision for Patrick Mullins to ride Fact To File.

A Dream To Share is your favourite, he beat Fact To File in Leopardstown. It was a slowly run race, but I think this will be a much different contest.

“I would be of the opinion the stayers win this race over the speed horses and I can see Fact To File changing that with A Dream To Share.

“Patrick Mullins may well have got it right and I’d be with Fact To File.”

Race 6

16:50 – Grand Annual Handicap Chase: Final Orders (6/1)

Dinoblue remains favourite for this race, but Final Order has won his last five races over fences.

He recently won at Leopardstown, suggesting he can overcome the 10lb rise, and has been tipped as one to watch here.

Race 5

16:10 – Glenfarclas Chase (Cross Country Chase): Delta Work (Oli Bell & Ruby Walsh, 5/4), Galvin (Ed Chamberlin, 9/4)

Oli Bell: “[On DeltaWork] Last year’s winner ran well in a handicap last time giving lots of weight away.”

Ed Chamberlin: “[On Galvin] A class horse, can beat Delta Work!”

Walsh is backing Delta Work too, but also tips Franco De Port each-way.

Ruby Walsh: “[Keith Donoghue booked on Delta Work] When you think about it – it’s not that big a shock.

“The success he’s had on Tiger Roll [previously] and I do think Delta Work is the one, especially with the rain that has fallen. Last year that was really what strengthened his [Delta Work’s] chance was real soft ground.

“He [Delta Work] won the first time up last year, but he has to be a better horse and with those runs under his belt, I think he’ll be hard to beat again.

Franco De Port is at a big price and will keep going at 8/1, he’s an each-way price anyway but Delta Work will win.”

Race 4

15:30 – Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase: Edwardstone (Oli Bell, 3/2), Edwardstone (Ed Chamberlin, 3/2)

Oli Bell is backing Edwardstone, saying that “last year’s Arkle winner should reverse the form with Editer Du Gite and I didn’t love Energumene last time out.”

Ed Chamberlin: “[Edwardstone] will be ridden differently than the Clarence House and looks rock solid.”

Walsh has also gone with Edwardstone.

“It doesn’t suit me to go against a Willie Mullins horse, but I am, and I’m going against Energumene and the more rain that falls the better chance he [Edwardstone] has.

Edwardstone looks like he’s capable of handling soft ground. Of the two of them since this time 12 months’ ago, Edwardstone looks to be the one who has improved or maybe he’s just maintained his form and Energumene has regressed.”

Race 3

14.50pm – Coral Cup Hurdle: Captain Conby (Ruby Walsh, each-way)

Walsh has tipped Captain Conby each-way. “I thought I’d pulled one out of the fire as I was going through these this morning and I was with Captain Conby as well.

“I was going through and Captain Conby on the last run behind San SalvadorIcare Allen ran too badly for me in Newbury and Scaramanga wants fast ground. Tax For Max is hard to fancy.”

Race 2

14:10 – Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase (Broadway Novices’ Chase): The Real Whacker (Alex Hammond, 11/2)

Sky’s Alex Hammond is backing The Real Whacker for the second race of the day.

Hammond: “[He] Won the Dipper on New Years Day and represents a yard that are flying along. Also entered in the Gold Cup!”

For Paddy Power, Ruby Walsh is “with Gerri Colombe.

“The race will set up for him – The Real Whacker will go forward as I said, so will Galia Des Liteaux, but he’s Gerri Colombe solid jumper.

“He looks like a horse that’s crying out for three miles and I think he’s the right favourite.”

13:30 – Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (Registered as The Baring Bingham): Hermes Allen (Oli Bell, 10/3), Impaire Et Passe (Ed Chamberlin, 13/8), Good Land (Alex Hammond, 6/1)

Oli Bell: “[On Hermes Allen] Really impressed in the Challow and it’ll take a seriously good Irish horse to beat him.”

Ed Chamberlin: “[Impaire Et Passe] Word on the street is that this horse is very good.”

Alex Hammond: “[On Good Land] Won at a high standard at the Dublin Racing Festival and has barely put a foot wrong to date. More to come.”

For PaddyPower, Ruby Walsh is “with Impaire Et Passe – he was very good in the maiden hurdle at Naas before Christmas, he was good in the Moscow Flyer where he dropped back to two miles”.
