There is €10,000 prize money on the eight-race card. There are horses making their way to the venue from as far as Cork. Horses to keep an eye out for are the likes of Che Guevara, perhaps the best miler every to grace the turf in the last two decades, who will be a well-backed favourite come Sunday. Other notable entrants to keep an eye on are Drive On George in the 148cm ponies and in the 153cm ponies, Vodka will be the one likely to take the fancy of the tipsters.
