Testing ground at Cork has not proved a deterrent and a seven-race card with bumper fields gets under way at 5.10pm with the July 12th BBQ Evening Beginners Chase.

Dul Ar An Ol has been a late recruit to the chasing ranks, but the 12-year-old appeared to relish the larger obstacles when second to the smart Toner D'Oudairies at Fairyhouse.

Willie Mullins' Turban could provide the biggest danger as he acquitted himself well on his chasing bow at Limerick last time.

Mullins also has strong claims in the Friday Evening Racing Maiden Hurdle with Dougal Philps, who was beaten a head and a short head into third at Tramore last time.

The consistent Spot The Pro and potential improvers Never Complain and Sea Light look the biggest threats.

Nina Carberry has just her second runner as a trainer when she saddles Blaze Of Fire in the Munster Handicap Chase, but he looks to have his work cut out on form.

William Wordsworth has been consistent of late and is entitled to go close, but Reality Dose could prove tough to beat as he appears to be getting back to the form of his Naas success.

Bumper winners Blue Article and Our Katie are sure to have their supporters in the Follow Cork On Facebook Mares Maiden Hurdle, but the jumping experience of Teochew could prove decisive.

The richest race on the card is the Follow Us On Twitter Handicap Hurdle, which sees Wexford winner Another Charm tackle handicap company against the likes of Way Up In The Air and Might Be Magic.

Sherika, Lughnasa and Truckin All Night all hold strong claims in a competitive renewal of the Fathers Day June 16th Novice Handicap Hurdle, while the www.corkracecourse.ie Flat Race could be between Aerlite Supreme, The Pounds and What Present.
