Colm Murphy will be hoping Rye Martini can take up his chasing career where he left off hurdling. The latter won over timber at Punchestown in April and makes more appeal than Drawn N Drank. Enda Bolger's winning hurdler has yet to figure in three starts over fences, but SEEFOOD fared better on his chasing bow when third at Limerick to Pass The Hat. The best of these over timber, he's fancied to open his account over the larger obstacles. Mullaghanoe River beat subsequent dual winner Gold Bullet over hurdles back in February and both make their chasing debuts today.
