Michael Browne’s Logo Hunter is clearly going the right way and was an impressive winner at Naas last time out, but looks likely to be a small enough price in an open Listed event. Ger Lyons is operating at a very healthy 28% with his runners on their seasonal reappearance in 2021, and Frenetic returns here after a successful juvenile campaign. Three times a winner at this level, she had a couple of today’s opponents behind her at Dundalk in November, and takes on the older brigade here, getting plenty of weight all round. Fast ground looks to suit and she might just have enough zip to trouble the favourite.

Dancin Inthestreet

It’s worth taking note when Paddy Twomey gets one from another trainer. He’s operating at a 45% strike-rate, for a level stakes profit of £111.71 with horses making their first start having switched to his yard. Dancin Inthestreet arrives from William Haggas with some decent form in the book. Placed on her first three outings last term, including at Royal Ascot when behind subsequent Group performers Art Power and Keep Busy, she wasn’t disgraced at Listed level on her final UK start. Dropping back into a handicap, and back down to 5f looks just the ticket for this pacy filly.


Aidan O’Brien has won five of the last seven Munster Oaks and sends out High Heels here, but she’ll need to improve on her seasonal reappearance when well beaten in fourth at Naas. Moll arrives here having made the step up in trip with aplomb when landing a course and distance event on her first start of the campaign. She had two subsequent Listed winners, including the re-opposing Mighty Blue, and a Group 3 winner in behind that day so the form looks strong, and she’s entitled to improve again. She’s nicely bred, with her dam a sibling to plenty of winners including Racing Post Trophy winner Rivet, and looks like fulfilling that potential at middle distances.

Federica Sophia

By Galileo, out of British Champions Day winner Sapphire, this filly was destined to be useful. She took a couple of goes to get off the mark last season, but won going away when upped to 10f at Leopardstown last July. Returning in 2021, she looks as though she wanted even further when staying on better than most over that same track and trip on handicap bow. Fourth that day, doing her best work late, Dermot Weld increases the stamina test she tackles and applies cheekpieces. She’s shown far less of her hand than her opponents here, but what we have seen has been very encouraging. Any improvement should see her on the premises.

About Cork Racecourse

Cork Mallow Racecourse is situated close to where the very first steeplechase reportedly took place back in 1752. Not only does the venue host a number of Graded National Hunt events, but is also the home to two Group 3 contests on the flat.

Over the obstacles, the Hilly Way Chase has potentially the most prestigious roll call with the likes of Beef or Salmon, Un De Sceaux and Douvan landing the race in the past 20 years.
