13:30 Fairyhouse – Apple’s Jade (BEST ODDS 6/4 with William Hill)
Apple’s Jade has 12 runs to her name in her career and has won eight of those races, coming second in the rest of them. She’s a classy mare and at the time of writing she isn’t favourite for this one, which surprised me a bit. Nichols Canyon is a great horse, but was a beaten favourite last time out by a horse that hasn’t gone on to impress as many thought he might. I wouldn’t usually be so quick to chose a Gordon Elliot trained horse over one trained by Willie Mullins, but this horse is a dual course and distance winner and is just supremely classy.
