BALLYMORE NOVICES’ HURDLE
1.30: GRADE ONE — 2 MILES, 5 FURLONGS
WiLLie MuLLinS saddles four of the 10 runners, which suggests the quartet may be of similar ability judged on homework. So, with conditions likely to favour those blessed with stamina, CHAMP KIELY could prove some value to topple those at the head of the market. Fourth in the Royal Bond Hurdle when a little keen, the selection kept on gamely from the front to win a naas Grade One in January, displaying a great attitude to see off a subsequent winner, and makes some appeal on his favoured ground. Stablemate IMPAIRE ET PASSE has been all the rage in the antepost market, with bullish vibes from his Closutton stable. if his talent matches the hype, he could prove a tough nut to crack, while MASTER CHEWY is an enormous price but boasts plenty of talent and could reward the value seekers.
