Race Tip

SAINT FELICIEN has to concede weight to some very capable and more experienced rivals but may be up to the task. He landed a strong contest at Auteuil on his only start in France and won readily on his Irish debut at Gowran. The placed horses both ran creditably in a Grade 2 at Limerick on Wednesday and the selection may improve again for this longer trip. Darver Star and Cilaos Emery made the frame in the 2020 Champion Hurdle and have to be greatly respected at this level. The former clearly doesn't enjoy chasing but at least was spared a hard race when pulled up early after suffering interference in the Paddy Power Chase on Monday. Cilaos Emery, who beat Darver Star over fences at Thurles last month, has a very good strike-rate in both disciplines but this will be his first start over the smaller obstacles since taking fourth place behind Epatante in March 2020.
