Fairyhouse stages a twilight meeting on Tuesday with the www.fairyhouse.ie Handicap Hurdle the pick of the action on the seven-race card.

This looks a fiercely competitive heat but the Willie Mullins-trained Rockyaboya is sure to prove popular with punters having registered wins at Punchestown and Navan this season and the assessor might not have caught up with him just yet.

There is no shortage of dangers, with classy chaser Pride Of The Artic dropped in grade for his return to hurdles and Caoimhe's Delight respected on the back of an impressive maiden success at Limerick over Christmas.

Racing begins at 4.50 with the Summer Racing At Fairyhouse Maiden Hurdle and provides another chance for impressive bumper winner Moscow Chief, so disappointing when fancied for his hurdling bow at Naas.

He is evidently thought capable of a good deal better but will need to be taking on dual runner-up Mr Cosmopolitan and the consistent Wedding Present.

Another big field goes to post in the Family Day 14th July Handicap Hurdle but most have something to prove and the solid option looks to be Faranadooney following his Clonmel second last month.

Toner D'Oudairies again came off second best when bidding to open his account over fences at Thurles and is one to be wary of now so Dul Ar An Ol might prove a safe alternative in the Follow Us On Twitter @fairyhouse Beginners Chase.

Sea Master ticks all of the right boxes for the Follow Fairyhouse On Facebook Handicap Chase after a string of solid offerings of late, but he does have to shoulder top-weight and the likes of Oscar Leney and Talab are interesting opponents.

The action draws to a close with the Ratoath INH Flat Race and the smartly-bred Drunken Counsel receives only a token vote as he makes his first start in public.
