Course specialist could be hard to catch

You Can't Catch Me: four-time winner at the track
1 of 1

7.35 Clonmel
Irish Stallion EBF Handicap Hurdle|4yo and up| 2m3f89yds| ATR

You Can't Catch Me has lived up to his name at Clonmel, where he has won four times, including three handicap hurdles over today's trip.

Successful in a 2m1f Flat maiden on his most recent visit to the track two weeks ago, the Kieran Purcell-trained eight-year-old is the mount of Brian O'Connell, who has twice ridden him to victory over hurdles.

Presenting Mahler is the other course-and-distance winner in the line-up, while War Of The Pennys and Fruits Of Glory also have winning form over the track.

The Eoin Doyle-trained Jefferson Davis was in action at Kilbeggan six days ago, when he finished fourth having won over 2m on his previous start at Wexford.

Little Haarth and Rebel Turn, both of whom are returning from long breaks, have both won over the distance, as has King Blue, at 11 the oldest horse in the line-up and the mount of Katie Walsh.


What they say

Des McDonogh, trainer of Little Haarth
It's his first run of the year and he's in good shape. We're looking forward to a summer campaign with him and we're hoping he runs well and comes on for the run. He can run well fresh.

Kieran Purcell, trainer of You Can't Catch Me
He's in great form and loves the track. The concern is the ground. He can't have it fast enough, so we don't want rain.

Eddie Cawley, trainer of Fruits Of Glory
He seems in great form. He's won over the course and it doesn't look that strong a race, so we're hoping it might be his day.

Eoin Doyle, trainer of Jefferson Davis
Things didn't go his way when he ran fourth at Kilbeggan on Friday. This is coming a bit soon but he seems in good form and, with luck in running, he should be thereabouts.
