Powers Gold Cup Odds: Flemenstar Heads the Betting for Sunday Feature at Fairyhouse

The Peter Casey trained Flemenstar will head a field of seven runners for Easter Sundays feature the Grade 1 Powers Gold Cup over 2m4f at Fairyhouse Festival. Currently available with best price odds of 11/8 from Betfred the highly regarded 7 year old will be looking to complete a five timer from six starts this season, that includes winning the Grade 1 Arkle Novice Chase at Leopardstown by 19 lengths back in January.

Flemenstar appears to have taken to fences extremely well and his easy victory last time out in the Grade 3 Naas Directors Plate Novice Chase proved that the 2m4f trip will hold no fears for him. However the ground would appear to be a slight negative as it is expected to be good and all of his chase wins thus far have come on soft ground. That said the conditions do not appear to have had any negative effect on Casey, who believes that the ground will not necessarily ride too fast and his charge is well equipped to deal with it if it does. Casey in fact has been nothing short of bullish about his chances which should attract further market support meaning that in all probability, he will go off with much shorter odds than currently quoted.

Next best in the betting with odds of 4/1 is the Mouse Morris entry Rathlin who also comes to the race with great form after winning his last three starts. In The latest of those, the Grade 2 Woodlands Park Novice Chase, at Naas at the end of February, he had the classy Shot From The Hip over 8 lengths adrift in second place. The seven year old has also won a Beginners and a Novice Chase at Fairyhouse, over the last couple of months suggesting that the course might be ideal for him. It is worth noting too that he has been the subject of a number of racing tips this week.

Also with odds of 4/1 available from betfred is the Willie Mullins trained Call The Police last seen finishing third, 13½ lengths behind Bobs Worth in the Grade 1 RSA Chase over 3m1f at last month’s Cheltenham Festival. He will relish the return to this shorter trip, the ground should not trouble him and he will have the considerable advantage Ruby Walsh in the saddle.

Having been warmed up for his tilt at this by winning a competitive 2 mile hurdle the other day at Limerick, False Economy from Michael Hourigan’s stable has been tentatively backed to upset the odds in this race. Before his Limerick win he had been given a couple of spin’s on the All Weather flat surface at Dundalk, which is hardly perfect preparation for a Novice Grade 1 Chase, particularly when tackling fences for only the second time. He did win his debut over fences however, taking a Beginners Chase over 2m4f at Limerick back in October where he had the useful staying chaser Four Commanders, 3 lengths behind. It is difficult to know which way to turn with this type of entry but Hourigan’s booking of Barry Geraghty for the ride could be significant. He can backed with odds of 9/1 from Betfred.

With odds of 10/1 is White Star Line, trained by Dessie Hughes who is a very interesting entry, particularly as it was he that finished in second place 8 lengths behind Hunt Ball in the Pulteney Land Investments Handicap Chase over 2m5f at the Cheltenham Festival. We all know the significance of that Hunt Ball win as it was one of the biggest talking points of the Festival, and that horse will now be aimed at taking on the ‘cream of National Hunt Chasers’ in the 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup. White Star Line meanwhile ran with great credit that day and should come on for the run. Certainly the stable are keen on his chances and are expecting a big run.

The field is made up by a second Willie Mullins entry Bishopfurze, who has odds of 14/1 and Gift Of Dgab a 16/1 shot, trained by Tony Martin who will have jockey Paul Carberry on board. Carberry it should be noted has been on the winner of this race three times in the last four years.
