Watching brief

THE Listed Hurdle race scheduled for Thurles next Thursday has seen three long odds-on favourites, one of which was Solwhit, turned over in successive years.

The latest renewal promises to be another intriguing affair, with So Young and Moon Dice among seven initial entries.

Willie Mullins' So Young sluiced up on his reappearance at Punchestown, while Paul Flynn's Galway Hurdle hero Moon Dice was desperately unlucky not to finish second in what was a decent Greatwood Hurdle in November.

With So Young just three pounds superior on official figures, it would be a real treat to see two such promising hurdlers turn out at the Tipperary venue.
