'Chit Chat' can do the talking for Russell

Davy Russell has made hay in the absence of the injured Ruby Walsh and the Cork rider bids to extend his lead at the head of the jump jockeys' title race with a quartet of rides at Fairyhouse.

Provided the Meath track passes a precautionary inspection at 8.0 this morning, Russell will expect to add to his tally of 89 winners this season - Walsh is 24 behind and Paul Townend a further six back - with Monbeg Chit Chat in the Beginners' Chase (2.30).

He may have to play second fiddle to Townend and Saldier, a French recruit making its debut for Willie Mullins, in the opening maiden hurdle (12.25) but much will be expected of his mount Pete So High, a creditable fourth when chasing home Mr Adjudicator at Leopardstown.

Mullins could land a quick double with the beautifully named Redhotfillypeppers in the mares maiden hurdle (12.55) but his main Irish trainers' championship rival Gordon Elliott is likely to strike with hot favourite Graineyhill in the handicap hurdle (1.25).

Elsewhere on the card, the featured handicap chase (3.05) could see Kinsale trainer Robert Tyner land the spoils with the JP McManus-owned Pack Your Bags.
