Leopardstown: Target for Flemenstar

Leopardstown: Target for Flemenstar

Sky Bet

Peter Casey is excited about the prospect of having a crack at the Frank Ward Solicitors Arkle Novice Chase at Leopardstown with his exciting charge Flemenstar.

He chased home subsequent Grade One scorer Bog Warrior on his chasing debut at Navan and the seven-year-old then bolted up at the same course before getting the better of a tussle with Lambro at Naas last weekend.

Casey said: "He'll go to Leopardstown (on January 29) and the drier ground there will suit him, as that was terrible ground in Naas there last Sunday.

"Then it will be a longer trip (after the Arkle) and maybe he will be sold after that, I don't know.

"We had a call, but the owner is not going to sell him until after the Arkle, anyway."
