Sizing Rio will feature in the Kedrah House Stud 'Well Chosen' Beginners Chase

Sizing Rio makes his fencing debut in the Kedrah House Stud 'Well Chosen' Beginners Chase at Tipperary on Thursday.

Henry de Bromhead's exciting prospect was pulled out of the race won by Felix Yonger at Punchestown on Saturday and takes up what appears a less taxing assignment.

De Bromhead will also have high hopes for Turica, who goes to post for the opening Healy Partners Architects Maiden Hurdle at 5.25.

The six-year-old was fancied to atone for a Wexford mishap at Tramore and although she could only manage second, that form sets the jumping standard winning bumper performers Pure Style and Young Finnegan must aspire to.

Wrong Turn laughed in the face of the handicapper at Killarney last weekend and he is reunited with Ruby Walsh for the Kilfeacle Stud 'Portrait Gallery' Handicap Chase under a penalty, with Tony Martin keen to get him out again before the assessor has his revenge.

Ballyreesode is another to arrive on the back of a facile success, but he has a 9lb rise to contend with in the Arkenvale Ltd Handicap Hurdle, not to mention fellow last-start scorers Rolling Rocket and Marshim, as well as Sterling Stuff, who was four lengths adrift of him at Ballinrobe.

The latter's trainer Robert Tyner throws two arrows at the Glenview And Rathberry Stud Novice Hunters Chase, with Soaring High and Bingo Bash both boasting solid credentials between the flags.

However, Ibetellingyoualie and She's Got Grit have got previous experience of jumping obstacles under Rules and that could be invaluable.

Willie Mullins and Gigginstown House Stud team up with impressive Loughnamore winner Unic De Bersy in the p2p.ie (C & G) Point-To-Point INH Flat Race, while there is a handful of point-to-point winners in the mares' version, with Our Belief, Scamaill Liath, Fennis Moll and Teresa Lisbon arguably the pick of the bunch.
