Zaidpour and Bog Warrior Ready For Galmoy Clash

Willie Mullins's Zaidpour will bid for back-to-back successes in the Grade Two Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran Park on Thursday, but the classy Co. Carlow inmate will face a tough opponent in the shape of Bog Warrior, who will be looking to continue his excellent recent form.

Managing to hold of the classy Voler La Vedette in last year's contest, Ruby Walsh will be aiming to emulate that performance on board Zaidpour who will be looking to stake his claim as a potential World Hurdle hope, but he will need to produce a notable effort if he is to head for the Cheltenham Festival.

A cracking winner of the Hatton's Grace Hurdle earlier in the season, Zaidpour was then reeled in by the progressive Monksland in the Christmas Hurdle, but Mullins will be hoping that he can return to winning ways on Thursday, at a meeting that will also hold the ultra-competitive Thyestes Chase.

However, the nine-year-old will have a classy rival in Bog Warrior, who is looking for his third win on the spin for the shrewd Tony Martin, and that one was last seen trouncing Solwhit, who has since gone on to frank the form.

A former Grade One novice chase winner, Bog Warrior oozes talent on his day and he has shown to take a real liking to hurdles and if he can continue on an upward curve could well be a major player at the Cheltenham Festival and will certainly hand Zaidpour a race in an intriguing contest.

Gordon Elliott has entered a brace of runners and it looks like Un Beau Matin will spearhead his duo and he could come into the reckoning if jumping betting, whilst Chicago Grey has been all out of sorts in recent times and would relish a longer distance in a race dominated by the likely front two in the market.
