Start Your Easter Weekend Off With A Bang At Fairyhouse

Start Your Easter Weekend Off With A Bang At Fairyhouse

God bless the Easter weekend, where we can layabout at our leisure and eat our body weight in chocolate.

Granted, the Easter Bunny doesn't come until Sunday so you need something to occupy yourself on Saturday before a wave of sweetness crashes upon your shore.

Well, lucky for you, Saturday marks the beginning of the Fairyhouse Easter Festival, and thanks to Ladbrokes, we have a few tips to guide you in the right direction.

Fairyhouse Saturday

Two horses who impressed at Cheltenham will juke it out in the 14.20 on Saturday.

Elimay lost out to Colreevy at the Festival in a terrific tussle, but the distance at Fairyhouse could be perfect for her this time out.

The opposite could be said of Mount Ida, who's also in this race, as although she won a handicap at Cheltenham, the drop back in distance may hinder her chances.

Even though she has to concede six pounds to Mount Ida, we fancy Elimay to take this one.

TIP: ELIMAY - Fairyhouse Saturday 14.20

The 16.15 on Saturday contains a fiercely competitive field and one horse that we feel could thrive in better conditions is Ruaille Buaille.

It's a supreme vote of confidence from Paul Townend to take the saddle on her rather than her stablemates, but a lot is dependent on the ground at the track.

She won both her bumper and maiden hurdle on sound ground, but came unstuck in poor conditions at the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown.

Should the ground keep up, anticipate Ruaille Buaille to have her say come the end of the race.

TIP: Ruaille Buaille - Fairyhouse Saturday 16.15
