He’s only graced the racetrack twice in his career, but there’s no doubt that Saint Felicien is a smart prospect and one he should stop by a lot.

Saint Felicien is one of three horses trained by Gordon Elliott and, unlike his stable mates Felix Desjy and Petit Mouchoir who have toured the neighborhood, he only enjoys one race in Ireland.

That single start was impressive and speaks volumes about the esteem in which it is held at Cullentra House that Saint Felicien was given entry into the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Even if he were to win in impressive fashion, Saint Felicien would be unlikely to line up at Cheltenham as he is surely a horse for the future.

There’s no doubt he’s a tough horse to place this season, but Relations have found a perfect opportunity for him to go three out of three, and he looks like a horse that will reward his patience over time. .

Whiskey Sour has been a good horse for Willie Mullins on both codes, but seems to have its work cut out for it. It’s hard to see anything else getting involved.

Mont Saint for the return of power

If anyone needs a break, Robbie Power is that man, and the rider who was unlucky with injuries has an ideal chance to be among the winners on his first outing since October.

Power injured his hip in a fall at Tramore on October 14 and could barely hide his excitement at the prospect of riding Saint Felicien for the first time.

He said: “Saint Felicien is a fine horse and did very well on his first start for Gordon at Gowran Park. He did what we expected him to do that day. It’s a big step. forward in the open society – he’s only had two setbacks in his life – but we love him very much.

“Given his inexperience, the races we do with him will not be easy, but he was very impressive at Gowran Park and has every right to take a chance. He will learn a lot more from Naas.”

What they say

Gordon Elliott, trainer of Saint Felicien, Felix Desjy and Petit Mouchoir
Saint Félicien seems to be the best of them, the other two are older horses but we will see what happens.

Willie Mullins, Whiskey Sour trainer
He hasn’t won in a while and will need to show his best form against good rivals, but the race could give him confidence with just six runners and he has a chance in a very close fight.
