Fairyhouse Placepot Selections 18th April

Celestial Horizon won with a lot in hand at Naas last time, the 3rd has won since, and he looks sure to run his race. Marvel Fan just failed to win here at the start of the month and a 3lb rise for his neck second to Irregularheartbeat looks fair. Only Sky sneaks in at the bottom of the weights but showed enough when winning a maiden hurdle at Cork to suggest she could go well on this mark.


Garrybello was very impressive when winning over hurdles in France and it is interesting to see his connections pitching him in at the deep end. Icare Allen sets the standard with his 4th placed finish in the Triumph and should really win this if he is over that effort last month.


Carrig Sam is the unexposed horse in the lineup and could well take this before stepping up into graded company. Festival D’ex has bumped into some talented horses in his last couple of starts and looks sure to run his race, as does Folcano, who ran a decent race in the Pertemps Final last month.


Thedevilscoachman has improved with every start this season. He and Whiskey Sour missed the Cheltenham festival and should be the ones to fight out the finish.


Janidil was 2nd to Allaho in the Ryanair last time out and sets a clear form standard, he should win this if he can repeat the effort.

Franco De Port has really improved this season with the step up to 3-miles and his 4th in the Leinster National was enough to suggest he can be competitive despite having top weight to carry. Gaillard du Mesnil was only 2-lengths behind Ahoy Senor in the Brown Advisory at the Festival and looks well worth a try at this trip. Farclas and Screaming Colours both bring solid form to the table and look fairly treated.
