Hatton's repeat an option for Catch Me

Edward O’Grady is considering switching Catch Me back to the smaller obstacles for the Bar One Racing Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday week.

Edward O’Grady is considering switching Catch Me back to the smaller obstacles for the Bar One Racing Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday week.

The seven-year-old, winner of the race 12 months ago, has been campaigned over fences so far this season, making a winning introduction at Cork before failing to complete in a Listed event at Navan.

O’Grady now needs to decide whether to let his charge have another go over the larger obstacles in the Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase, or go back over timber in the Grade One hurdle he won twelve months ago when beating Brave Inca.

“He’s fine and we will certainly have to look at the Hatton’s Grace,” said the County Tipperary handler.

“He’s in the Drinmore as well but he did win the Hatton’s Grace very well last year. We’ll just have to see.

“We also have Osana entered in the Drinmore, but I don’t think he’ll run.”
