A warm welcome to this Thursday blog where I’ll be sharing my selections with you for the Thyestes Chase that’s set to take place at 2:50 at Gowran Park. The race is a hugely competitive Grade A handicap that’s contested over a distance of three miles and a furlong, and I’ve tried my hand with two selections in the eighteen-runner affair.
My first selection comes in the form of Gabbys Cross who’s currently a 10/1 chance for the team of Henry De Bromhead and Rachael Blackmore. He looks a progressive sort who was last seen when posting a very promising effort in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown back in December, finishing sixth of twenty-eight. Prior to that he’d finished fifth in the Kerry National at Listowel, which shows he seems to handle a big competitive handicap, and he’s only a pound higher in the weights following those efforts. If turning up in the same form I think he’s got every chance of going well again in this.
