BEST LONGSHOT; A forecast outsider who could be primed to outrun its likely odds.

Byline: Ed Quigley

GLENFINN CAPTAIN could be the joker in the pack in the Grade 1 Lexus Chase at Leopardstown (2.35), writes Ed Quigley.

The Tom Taaffe-trained nine-year-old seems to be progressing with age, and has made mincemeat of his rivals in his last two starts, including a comprehensive victory in the Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase last time.

Taaffe has always held the son of Alderbrook in high regard, and word from the stable is that he is fine, well and in good form.

This is his toughest assignment and Neptune Collonges may be difficult to beat, but many of the other protagonists have question marks over them. Barry Geraghty's mount has to have a live each-way chance.
