There's a day of exciting racing ahead at Fairyhouse, and as usual we've picked out a few horses to tickle your fancy before the off.
Under almost any other circumstances we'd be picking Nichols Canyon out as the horse to watch in the 13:00 Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle. Unfortunately for Canyon, Allez Colombieres is making a return after a year long absence, and despite the cobwebs we fancy him to take the laurels.
He might be returning from a year out but he's impressed us previously. His form speaks volumes - although he was pulled up once after bolting before the start, he won the other three races he has entered. Assuming he's race fit we don't doubt he's capable of repeating if not improving on his previous form - and if he weren't race fit he wouldn't be running.
The bookies all agree with us, unfortunately, and they've made him the odds on favourite. Nonetheless, if you want to back him the best odds we've found were 4/5 over at Coral.
Further down the card for the same race, we also spotted Draco.
He's certainly not one of the better fancied horses running on Sunday, and his form is patchy at best. Nonetheless he has won a couple of races and twice finished second to Most Peculiar, who is not at all a bad horse. On his day Draco can run at the front, and with Tony McCoy on board there's certainly the possibility that a good day lies ahead.
It could go either way, but with odds as tempting as 20/1 at Boylesports we think he's worth a little flutter.
Finally, in the 14:05 Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase it's hard to look past current favourite The Tullow Tank for the win.
He's previously run extremely well here over a distance just one furlong greater, and his form speaks volumes. Having taken a win here two seasons ago, he has also finished a good runner up to Vautour who subsequently confirmed that form as Supreme Novices' winner.
He's going to have some stiff competition from Apache Stronghold and Valseur Lido, but we think he's got what it takes to tsee them off. The best place we found to back him for the win was ToteSport, who offer a market-leading 15/8.
