Honcho can shrug off poor draw

HEATS of the A4 Stake top the bill at Curraheen Park tonight and punters can have a winning start by supporting Drohans Honcho in heat one.

A game 16.73 winner at Clonmel in December, Drohans Honcho shaped well when third in 29.21 over this course and distance last month.

As that was his first outing at this venue, Drohans Honcho has scope for improvement and can shrug off a trap four draw.

Heat two can go to All In. Dave Whelan’s runner has a 29.42 effort at Youghal to his credit and should go well from an inside draw.

Graham Holland’s Riverside Tina looks the part in heat three.

A 29.64 winner on her penultimate start at Clonmel at the beginning of the month, Riverside Tina stumbled at traprise when unplaced at the same venue last time and can bounce back here.
