Tower Bridge (13/2) – 1 Pt ew
143 rated hurdler who reached a similar level over fences last year albeit without winning a race.
Second in last year’s Close Brothers looks rock solid form and it may prove better down the line.
Up in trip, Tower Bridge should prove a different proposition. Still only a novice, I was impressed with his seasonal reappearance at Naas where his jumping was professional. I believe the first four home that will be winning plenty over fences with Torando Flyer in particular looking star quality.
11 2Ibs shouldn’t break Tower Bridge’s back around Navan and 141 could prove a silly mark around 14:45.
Ticks plenty of boxes and for once it looks like myself and Ronan Groome agree!
Young Paddymac (16/1) – 1 Pt win
Frontrunner who appeared the winner before falling at Punchestown in May.
Likely to be still well treated off 122 and he ran a cracker to finish second over today’s C&D on handicap debut in March.
Ground and trip won’t be an issue and the Stowaway 7yo ticks alot of the boxes required to win the Troytown Chase for local trainer Tom Gibney.
A small concern would be his below par effort on his seasonal return at Cork but ridden more forward today should see him hit the frame.
Danny Mullins has been in the bath all week making sure he makes 9 11 Ibs.
Win only play @ 16/1
