Gerry charged up for PowerHeadlines
Glam Gerry

Colm Murphy is confident Glam Gerry is ready to make his presence felt in the hugely valuable Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown today.

With over 100,000 euros on offer to the winner, the three-mile handicap has unsurprisingly attracted a very strong and competitive field.

Glam Gerry is a course winner, showed his class when third at the Cheltenham Festival in the spring, and ran a blinder when switched back to the smaller obstacles for the Greatwood Hurdle back at Cheltenham last month.

Murphy has a second runner in Thursday's race in the shape of Gates Of Rome, and said: "The two of them are well, really well. You'd have to say on the formbook Glam Gerry is realistically going there with a great chance. He's in very good form and he shouldn't mind the ground.

"The three miles is a bit of an unknown but everything he does suggests he should get the trip, so we're very hopeful.

"Gates Of Rome is more of an outsider but he seems well and if he puts his best foot forward and has a clear round, he could be on the premises as well."

Last year's winner Cross Appeal is one of three runners for Noel Meade, who also saddles Muirhead and Thegreatjohnbrowne, the latter making his first competitive appearance in two years.

"Cross Appeal won the race last year and is in good form, but the rain that is falling will not be a help to him. He likes better ground, so we'll have to see what happens," said Meade.

"Muirhead is similar and the ground won't be ideal for him. If it turns into a real slog, that wouldn't really be in his favour. Thegreatjohnbrowne is in great form at home. The ground should be all right for him but obviously it's going to be difficult to win a race as competitive as this on his first run in a long time."
