Mullins' Breach has weighty task

Willie Mullins and Gigginstown House Stud team up with Security Breach in the featured Fast Shipping Bellewstown Handicap Hurdle but he shoulders plenty weight and has serious opposition in easy Ballinrobe winner Xsquared, now ridden by Paul Carberry.

The latter, who is trained by Joanna Morgan, lumped 11st 12lb to a comprehensive success at the County Mayo circuit, although he has been hit with a 9lb rise and the hitherto disappointing Vive La France also comes into the equation for Tony Martin.

As the three-day festival gets under way, the opening five races are all on the level with Adroit catching the eye in the Resolve Race Cubes Handicap, having won his maiden on his second start at Gowran recently.

Adroit's trainer Ger Lyons has his horses in fine form at present and is also represented by Bad News Bear, runner-up on his latest start at Limerick, in the opening Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Median Auction Maiden and with Snowname, by Galileo and a winner at Down Royal latest, in the City North Handicap.

The Anglo Printers Novice Hurdle may have attracted just the four runners, but three of them are closely matched, and Cape Glory and Indian Icon both arrive in search of hat-tricks.

They have to concede 10lb to Henry Higgins, who has been campaigned in Grade One and Two company over timber so far and struck on the level at Leopardstown on his most recent appearance.
