Trainer Gordon Elliott has confirmed that he’ll run his stable stars Apple’s Jade, Samcro and Envoi Allen at Fairyhouse’s Winter Festival.
Apple’s Jade will get a runout at Navan this weekend when she bids to win the Lismullen Hurdle for the third successive year.
She’s then expected to go for a tilt at a fourth Baroneracing.com Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse.
“Apple’s Jade will run in the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan on Sunday…after Navan, she’ll be back to Fairyhouse for the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle.”
Samcro, who won over fences at Down Royal last week, is being targetted for the Drinmore.
“I was delighted with Samcro when he won over fences at Down Royal at the weekend, and Keith Donoghue was very impressed with him.
“The Drinmore Novice Chase looks the obvious race to go for with him now, and of course the likes of Battleoverdoyen and Champagne Classic are very much in the mix as well. That day at Fairyhouse is one we always look forward to.”
While Elliott says the Royal Bond is a likely next race for Champion Bumper winner Envoi Allen.
“Envoi Allen was very good when he won over hurdles at the weekend at Down Royal,” said Elliott.
“He has come out of that race well, and we are looking at the Royal Bond at Fairyhouse for him.
