Peregrine Run: set to record 20th career win at Friday’s Ulster Cesarewitch

Friday: 6.10 Down Royal

The popular Peregrine Run veteran proved he still retained much of his old shine when he challenged the maximum weight to land a £25,000 handicap pursuit at Worcester last month, and the evergreen 12-year-old holds strong claims to follow in this test of endurance.

It could be a 20th career-defining win for the Peter Fahey-trained stalwart – returning to the scene of his breakthrough hurdles success in August 2016 – and the trip should bring out the best in him on his first flat appearance since winning at Leopardstown last year.

His mark of 78 in this area leaves him 1 pound over top-rated contender Scenic Look, a flat winner at the Galway Festival who easily scored in a first hurdle of 2m1f mares at this course last week.

This dual-purpose filly looks to be in the shape of her life, but improved performance will be needed to win while putting weight on all her rivals.

Scenic Look: Enjoying a great run for trainer Adrian Murray

Willie Mullins has a live chance with Dark Voyager, who has run creditably in defeat lately but needs to find some progression to score, while Karl Thornton-trained Rich Belief could leave behind a disappointing effort on the obstacles in Killarney, now returning to the Apartment.

Noel Meade has won this race four times since 2012 and is responsible for two spirited challengers, saddled recent handicap jump winner Ballinrobe Sheishybrid and capable stayer Female Approach.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if Female Approach stepped up their game to try this new, longer flat trip.

What they say

Adrian Murray, Scenic Look Coach
It behaved very well during its last starts and takes its race very well. The trip won’t be a problem for him. She’s a tough mare.

Peter Fahey, Peregrine Run Coach
He was a legend for the yard and it was great to see him take the lead last time out. We hope there will be no rain for him and that he should finish the trip well.

Noel Meade, Sheishybrid trainer and feminine approach
Hope it suits them both. Sheishybrid was very good last time over hurdles and seems to be in great shape, so hopefully she brings that to the track. Female Approach has a good weight and, like Sheishybrid, stays well.

Sheila Lavery, Thermoscope and Annechery trainer
Thermoscope has a nice pedigree and I think he will enjoy the journey stage. We just had to give him time to develop before, it wasn’t that there was anything wrong with him. He got better. Annecherie is a solid stayer who has won twice at Dundalk. She hasn’t brought that form to the grass yet, but we’re hopeful.

Jim Gorman, representing Three Comets coach Luke Comer
He ran well over the hurdles last time in Galway and hopefully this race can help him get back on the flat. His previous start at Killarney was also decent and I think he will stay the trip, so hopefully he has a great race.
