Down Royal’s NAP: GO ANOTHER ONE | 6:00pm Tommy Donnelly Bookmaker Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
A trappy little affair but John McConnell’s charge looks difficult to look beyond given his victory in this race last year and the manner of his Cork success last time out.
The versatile son of Stowaway is rarely out of the frame and should be able to dominate this small field under a 7lb claimer.
Denise Foster’s Tullybeg should be better suited by a return to the smaller obstacles and gets 4lb off the selection, rating as chief threat under Jordan Gainford.

William Durkan’s gelding looks to have been found a good opening to end his winless streak after a solid effort in a handicap at Galway last time out.
He’s been upped in trip for the first time but given his flat form, he should stay the extra four-furlongs.
Brien Kane claims 5lb off his mount’s back and he may not find many better opportunities than this.
