1:10pm Down Royal Irish Stallion Farms EBF Rated Novice Chase 2m



Rachel Blackmore takes the ride on the in-form Peacock’s Secret, who rightly leads the way in the betting. Shark O’Hanlon’s chaser may be searching for his fourth win in five starts, but he has a seven-pound hike in the ratings to cope with and has failed to win in any of his nine starts over two miles.

Most of the field is moving down in trip here, apart from D’bru Na Boinne, who finished sixth at Fairyhouse on Saturday. The one who could be best suited by the drop in the distance could be MONATOMIC, who can count himself unlucky not to have broken his duck over fences and looks to be the one to side with.

After falling at the last when leading comfortably on his chasing debut, Gordon Elliott’s charge twice finished second. First, narrowly losing out to Ellie Mac before a bad mistake at the last cost him victory in a competitive chase at Clonmel. Another final fence mistake saw Monatomic drop back to third when carrying a big weight on his handicap debut and things got worse last time out, fading to eventually finish fifth at Fairyhouse.

Monatomic seemed to be traveling well over that two-and-a-half-mile trip, until a poor jump two from home helped the tank empty sooner than expected. Jack Kennedy will be keen to make up for that defeat and, if he can register a smooth round of jumping, a first victory over the larger obstacles looks well within his capabilities.
