One of the biggest talking points of the weekend will no doubt be the change of race times with today's Naas card the first to veer away from the standard starting slots in Ireland.

In order to help reduce the likelihood of English meetings starting at similar times, there are some peculiar start times at the Kildare track, no more so than the BBA Ireland Limited Opera Hat Mares Chase (1.37).

Willie Mullins has won three of the last four renewals - all with short-priced favourites including Benie Des Dieux two years ago - so the champion trainer has another strong hand.
