The Killarney July Festival starts this evening where the first of 8 races is due off at 5.20pm. The feature event on the card is the Brehon Hotel Chase, which has attracted just four runners. The race race may well prove a competitive affair with Jurado Express (rated 127), Mutakarrim (128) and Albatross (124) all closely matched. Former Galway hurdle winner quinze completes the line up, but looks a shadow of his former self. Preference is for Dermot Weld’s Mutakarrim, on the basis of a fine placed effort at the Curragh last month. A fair horse at his best, he may possess too much pace for Jurado Express, a winner last time in a four runner race at Clonmel.
