DOUVAN BACK AT CLONMEL: The dual Cheltenham Festival winner Douvan returns to the track for the Clonmel Oil Chase this afternoon.
Great to see Douvan back this afternoon at Clonmel after a 569 day absence from the track but he has a mighty hard task to win this after such an absence and Willie Mullins has admitted that winning would be a bonus.
Official ratings go out the window a little for a race like this but one thing is certain Douvan has a serious rival in Monalee who is rated 164.
The Henry De Bromhead trained runner has been off the track himself since May when he was pulled up in the Punchestown Gold Cup but his form prior to that was very solid including a fourth to Frodon in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.
It’s a tough call but head says Monalee and heart says fingers crossed for a big run from Douvan with plenty of hope for the season ahead.
NAP: Monalee (2.50 Clonmel)
