Tuesday, Jun 11 2019

Peregrine Run is hunting a hat-trick in the Odds Boost Your Bets On The Ladbrokes App Steeplechase at Punchestown.

Peter Fahey’s nine-year-old beat Jett, who reopposes on Wednesday, by a nose at Killarney last month – before following up by a head in the Mayo National at Ballinrobe.

The son of King’s Theatre relishes good ground, which he is forecast to encounter, and he is the highest-rated of the five runners on a mark of 157.

Jett is likely to provide a stern challenge, while Gordon Elliott’s dual-purpose horse Flaxen Flare cannot be ruled out after returning from a lay-off to score over hurdles at Killarney.

Elliott’s Count Simon jumped big and bold when winning over hurdles at Down Royal, and appears tailor-made for the larger obstacles in the Bet In-Play With The Ladbrokes App Beginners Steeplechase.

Thecraicisninety has to go on the short-list for the Download And Bet With The Ladbrokes App Handicap Steeplechase after a solid runner-up finish on seasonal reappearance at Kilbeggan.

The winner of that contest, Mill Quest, went in again at Limerick to boost the form.

City Ballerina travelled well for a long way before unseating at the second-last in Listowel, which brings her into the mix for the Ladbrokes Mares Maiden Hurdle.

Ash Hill was last seen finishing unplaced in a Grade Two bumper at Leopardstown in February but could make his mark, on debut over flights, in the Download The Ladbrokes App Maiden Hurdle.

Stacks Mountain was a clear-cut winner of a three-mile maiden hurdle at Tipperary, so is likely to be popular in the Bet Now With The Ladbrokes App Handicap Hurdle over the same trip.

Elliott’s point-to-point graduate Gun Merchant made a satisfactory start to his racecourse career when second in a Tramore bumper, which makes him the one to beat in the Ladbrokes Download The Grid App Flat Race.
