Fairyhouse Tips - Sunday 28th November

Race 1 - Juvenile Hurdle Tips

FIL DOR dominates the betting here, and for very good reason. Gordon Elliott's recruit looked like an absolute monster on his hurdles debut at Down Royal, jumping beautifully from the front before surging clear down the home straight to win by 16 lengths.

It's hard to read into the form of that race, as the second and third-placed horses haven't been seen since. Yet, even if they had been comprehensively beaten next time out, it wouldn't take the gloss off Fil Dor's performance. He could be a superstar.

Mighty Potter features in my 40 To Follow list, so I was delighted to see him claim such a dominant victory on his first hurdles start at Down Royal. Visually, Mighty Potter looks more like a Ballymore horse than a Supreme contender, to me anyway, and he comes up against quicker rivals in this Grade One.

Three Stripe Life and Impervious have to be given a chance, but I've been so impressed with MY MATE MOZZIE in recent starts, I don't want to side against Gavin Cromwell's star.

My Mate Mozzie comfortably outjumped and outgalloped a 106-rated flat horse in Barbados when winning on his hurdles debut. Mark Walsh's mount then jumped a little out to his right at Navan in the For Auction Novices' Hurdle. Boothen Boy's fall made his task a little easier, but I doubt he'd have been able to lay up with My Mate Mozzie as the favourite kicked clear to claim his maiden Graded win.

Going back right-handed is definitely going to suit and I think he's the most accomplished jumper in the field. Connections have said they plan to step My Mate Mozzie up in trip at some point, but to me, he looks every inch a two-miler and I think he'll take some beating in this Grade One.

Race 3 - Drinmore Novices' Chase Tips

Grand Paradis also features on my horses to follow list and I thought he was jumping well at Down Royal on his chase debut, before an untimely tumble at the second-last. I would really fancy him as an each-way bet had the ground been a little softer. Good going certainly won't suit this relentless galloper.

LIFETIME AMBITION probably had Grand Parados covered when the latter capsized at Down Royal. Jessica Harrington's six-year-old, who won his final two starts over fences, jumped well at the front that day, and found more on the run to the line to see off Beacon Edge and the classy Vanillier. Sean O'Keeffe's mount is built to jump a fence, and I'm sure he'll progress quickly during the course of the season. For me, he's the one to beat.

Race 4 - Porterstown Handicap Chase Tips

Gordon Elliott has won two of the last three Porterstowns, and he accounts for four of the 11 runners on Sunday. Coko Beach tops the betting, but I'd rather side with Davy Russell's mount, MILAN NATIVE, who won the Kim Muir as a maiden chaser at Cheltenham in 2020.

Elliott's charge returned to action last season with a narrow victory over a high-quality rival in Discorama at Galway, so he clearly does run well fresh. Things didn't go to plan during the spring, but Milan Native returns to action running off a six-pound lower mark than where he started last term and he looks like a solid each-way bet at 10/1.

Race 5 - Hatton's Grace Hurdle Tips

By his own admission, Henry De Bromhead made a mistake last year by bringing Honeysuckle to Fairyhouse only 75% fit. They almost paid the price too, as Ronald Pump came close to running Honeysuckle down in the closing stages. De Bromhead won't be taking any such chances this time around, and I expect Honeysuckle will be fully wound-up as she goes for a third-straight Hatton's Grace. A 13th win on the bounce seems inevitable.

That being said, there are three paid places to play for here. Taking an each-way stab on one at a longer price seems the best betting ploy and I've tentatively come down on the side of SIRE DU BERLAIS.

This is a genuine risk, as Sire Du Berlais usually saves his very best for Cheltenham in the Spring and scarcely runs right-handed. Yet, after a solid effort under a penalty in the Lismullen Hurdle, I'm prepared to take a chance on this classy nine-year-old making a late dash for the places.

Race 6 - Handicap Hurdle Tips

With bookmakers like Betfred paying out six places in this huge handicap, an each-way bet is the way to go, and the one I like most is DAD'S LAD, for Brian Hayes and Willie Mullins.

With Willie's nephew, Charlie in the saddle, Dad's Lad claimed a solid maiden victory at Sligo in October. Brian Hayes then guided Mullins' six-year-old home on his handicap debut at Cork two weeks ago, where Dad's Lad kicked clear after a sticky jump at the second-last to secure another comfortable win. Even off a career-high mark of 120, he could be a big player in Sunday's final big race.
