The Hennessy cognac gold cup at Leopardstown on Sunday Feb 7th.
This looks interesting race with just eight declared runners,and seven these runners having met in Lexus chase at Leopardstown over C/D back in December.
MONEY TRIX ,Looks strong contender here, having only been beaten 1/2 lengh by What a friend with Joncol,Notre Pere and Cooldine all behind and will be well suited to testing conditions at Leopardstown.
Still very lightly raced for 10 year old only having 12 starts and still looks open too improvement,so it surprising the bookmakers have put him in third favourite at around 7-2 and looks good value at that price.
Cooldine has been very disappointing on his last two starts and has just not reproduced last seasons RSA Cheltenham form and cannot be considered at around 2-1 after being pulled up last time in lexus chase.
Joncol,looked the likely winner of Lexus coming to last but weakend badly after the last appeared not to stay 3 miles on testing ground.
Notre pere,has looked disappointing since falling at Down Royal last november,though did finish second in this race last year,still has lot to find with Money trix on Lexus race.
RECOMMENDED BETS SCALE 1 TO 10 PTS:
MONEY TRIX 3PTS E-WAY AT 7-2 with ladbrokes,paddy power
