    Tough race for Bob Olinger in the Lawlors Of Naas on Sunday.

    Arguably a tougher assignment than what Envoi Allen had to face in last years renewal, IMO.

      Might not be going ahead. Inspection today at Nass at the track is frozen.

        Would this race be saved to run at a different course in a few weeks?

          Maybe reading into it too much as Mullins only runner in the lawlors, but Townend booked on board Blue Lord, any significance? Added 20/1. I know as mentioned and met with support with tipsters with platform putting up Gailard Du Mesnil for here, but wouldn't be bad having another arrow for a Willie horse!

          Has had a few run here who did drop back to 2 and ran in supreme in the past though, elixar last year and Bellshill who won it few years back but disappointing in supreme albeit.

          speculation though that last year may have been to avoid Envoi! (Although did send TBG to Ballynore) Next destination won here and ran decent race in Ballymore if I recall.

            If conditions improve, it's possible that they would do Fairyhouse on Wednesday and Naas on Thursday, I'd say. A pure guess at this stage though.

              Nah, I think he's a red herring His flat form (in France) was average, his maiden hurdle, whilst winning, was against a horse that was well behind in the bumper last season, and ultimately turning into another Debuchet (for same trainer at that stage of his career).

              If Bob Olinger can't put him away then I will be extremely disappointed. I may even quit

                Naas don't seem confident at all that the meeting will be on Sunday.

                  Willie & Patrick have spoken highly of Blue Lord and he won his maiden and is talented. Worth a punt I reckon at big odds

                    Tell me a horse they don't speak highly of when in training with them?

                            You expect? Must have thought highly enough to stick him straight in a Supreme first time up

                              He actually did speak highly of berkshire royal too before last years festival haha. I think he was trying to sell him at that point though and succeeded.
