6.30 Ballinrobe Treacy's Pharmacy Chase 2m1f ATR Card page 54 GIGGINSTOWN supply three runners for a quality renewal of this €20,000 chase and their three trainers will all believe they have serious chances of providing Michael O'Leary with a winner close to Knock airport.
Enjoy Responsibly travels from Henry de Bromhead's stable, but long-distance journeys do not bother him, as his last run, when he won at Killarney, illustrates.
The Charles Byrnes-trained Arnaud beat The Game Changer at Wexford before a placed effort over hurdles at Sligo this month, while Savello was eighth in the Galway Plate for Tony Martin on his most recent outing.
Gigginstown racing manager Eddie O'Leary said: "It's quite a high-quality chase and the conditions of the race have enticed some nice horses.
"Enjoy Responsibly was very good last time at Killarney and hopefully he can put in a similar performance here. Savello is a nice horse, and Arnaud is back over fences for this race."
Arthur Moore won this in 2011 with Free World and saddles Pass The Hat. The eight-year-old was narrowly denied by Your Busy in last year's Kerry National off a rating of 134 and now races off 138, having hit a high of 143 last season.
"The aim for Pass The Hat is the Kerry National once again," said Moore. "He was second in the race last year and this looked a suitable race to help prepare him for another run at Listowel.
"It's a nice race and the conditions will suit him, but the trip might be a shade on the sharp side for him."
