Prolific Green back for moreHeadlines
Mouse Morris

Baily Green will face his toughest task since his seven-race winning streak began in Sunday's AGK Displays Craddockstown Novice Chase at Punchestown.

Mouse Morris' six-year-old will come up against Jessica Harrington's Grade One-winning hurdler Oscars Well in the Grade Two event, which has attracted just four runners. Oscars Well looked a natural on his chasing debut at this course last month, when ploughing through heavy ground to win unextended by 12 lengths.

Morris is well aware his prolific winner has it all to do giving away 6lb to Harrington's charge, saying: "He seems to run every week but he's so well we may as well run him. This will be tough, though, he's giving weight to some very smart horses. My lad is fit and he's got experience, but it will be tough giving 6lb."

Harrington also runs Jenari, a winner on his chasing debut at Naas, while Willie Mullins is represented by a Grade Three winner in Twinlight.

However, if Oscars Well can equate his hurdling form, which saw him finish sixth in the Champion Hurdle in March, he will be tough to beat, as his entry in the Drinmore next month suggests.

"After the Craddockstown he's entered in the Drinmore but we are taking it step by step," said Harrington on At The Races.

"He won his beginners chase at Punchestown a couple of weeks ago really easy, so it's step by step and we hope that we end up at Cheltenham in March.

"He's seven now, he's only just growing into himself and I hope he can really fulfil his potential this year."
