12:45 Fairyhouse – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase (4yo+) 2m5f

French flat racing winner FAUGUERNON has shown some ability in a number of starts over hurdles including registering a win at Leopardstown last Boxing Day; Noel Meade’s charge has shaped well on both his starts this campaign over the smaller obstacles but could be worth chancing to make more of an impact now chasing.

The Martaline gelding built on a much-needed return at Listowel to finish a good fourth at this venue latest, beaten six lengths behind Mig Des Taillons where he looked outpaced before running on although he never seriously threatened to get involved.

He goes chasing now however and is upped in distance which might bring some improvement and if able to translate the best of his hurdling form to fences then he ought to go close.

1:45 Fairyhouse – Tattersalls Cheltenham November Sale @ Fairyhouse 3yo Maiden Hurdle (3yo) 2m

SIDESHIFT was a winner on the all-weather for Michael O’Callaghan prior to moving to Gordon Elliott and the Sidestep gelding offered something to work on over obstacles when finishing runner-up at Galway ten days ago behind Perry Owens.

Sporting a hood for the first time he was beaten just over one length on that occasion, running green early but he caught the eye travelling well turning in and he jumped the last in front before being overhauled by the potentially useful winner.

That run will have taught him plenty about the jumping game and he can improve for the experience to go one better.

Tuesday best bets for Fairyhouse. Top trainer Gordon Elliott can get amongst the winners.

2:45 Fairyhouse – Jetaway.ie @ Artic Tack Stud Handicap Hurdle (Div I) (4yo+ 80-95) 2m

THE DREAMS ALIVE struggled over longer trips when trained by Eoin Griffin, but having been dropped in distance by new handler Tom Foley the Beneficial mare has shown better form in her two outings for her yard and latterly found only one too good at this venue last month.

Beaten five lengths behind She’s Coimmanche, running on well but unable to land a blow on the easy winner it was a step in the right direction and there might be better forthcoming given she appears to be progressing albeit slowly.

She wore a tongue-tie for the first time in that latest run which may have helped and cheekpieces are now added to the mix which could elicit another jolt of improvement; while the handicapper has only pushed her up 1lb for that last outing.

The booking of a very good claimer in Simon Torrens adds further strength to her claims and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a bold showing.
