Last Sunday, those in attendance at Naas bore witness to what was the easiest winner spotted anywhere in a long time as the Charles Byrnes trained ABRAHAM turned a competitive looking Handicap hurdle into a procession. Ruby Walsh often says he loves to see a horse take a long time to pull up. Well, that lad must’ve been nearly in Lawlor’s Hotel before he came to a halt.
Elsewhere on the card, the Noel Meade trained Thedevilscoachman was an equally impressive victor in the Bumper under the burgeoning Eoin Walsh. Whether there will be anything of comparable quality on view during today’s fixture at Clonmel remains to be seen.
It could, hardly surprisingly, be another profitable day for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend who boast live chances in the form of GETAWAY GEORGEOUS and TIGER TAP TAP.
