Templegate

THE drinks are on WHISKEY SOUR in the Randox Health County Hurdle. He was third behind Mohaayed in this race 12 months ago having landed a Grade 1 novices’ hurdle earlier in the season. He’s much better off at the weights this time and has clearly been saved for a shot at this race.

I think WHISKEY SOUR has strong each-way claims here for Ruby Walsh and Mullins. A Grade 1-winning novice, he loves to run at a strong pace and was an eyecatcher when last seen.

Wizard Of Odds

CUT THE MUSTARD looks hot in the County Hurdle. She has been knocking on the door with a couple of good runs in big field across the Irish Sea. The 2m2f trip may have just been a little too far at Leopardstown last time as she was collared in the dying yards.

Trends

That leaves a shortlist of Éclair Du Beaufeau, Due Reward and Storm Rising. It’s asking a lot for the latter to come here just six days after his last run.

Of the remaining pair, ÉCLAIR DU BEAUFEU just gets the nod after a solid fourth on handicap debut last time.
