Bidding for the victory.
Byline: PETER O'HEHIR
ARE YOU BIDDING might be worth waiting for in Kilbeggan tomorrow.
The Willie Mullins-trained five-year-old, third at Fairyhouse on his debut in February, sets the standard in the bumper, the www.kilbegganraces.com Flat Race and might be capable of continuing the champion trainer's all-year-round stream of winners - he saddled a treble in Punchestown on Wednesday.
A son of Presenting, he was beaten almost 10 lengths when third to Thebarrowman at Fairyhouse, form boosted when the winner landed his maiden hurdle in Navan before being considered good enough to contest the Grade 1 Daily Mirror Champion Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival.
Clearly, Are You Bidding is no star. But his debut run suggested he should be capable of a bumper success and should be better suited by tomorrow's fast surface than the heavy ground he encountered at Fairyhouse.
With Patrick Mullins in the saddle, he should prove too strong for Souphanouvan, bought out of Sam Curling's to join Gordon Elliott following his debut second to Dani Theatre in Thurles last October.
Two chasing debutants which have changed address since last seen, All Hell Let Loose and Exxaro, should dominate the Mullingar.ie Beginners Chase.
Fifth to Woodland Opera at Punchestown (when rated 130 over hurdles), All Hell let Loose, transferred from Sandra Hughes' yard to Henry de Bromhead's, might have the edge over his rival, formerly trained by de Bromhead, but now with Mouse Morris.
