Can't Move On

Paul Townend Confident Monkfish Will Justify Hype

He's stepping back from 3m to 2m 5f this weekend.

Monkfish is one of a whole host of stars from the Willie Mullins stable bidding to land some of the brig prizes of offer at this  
weekend’s Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown. 

He runs in Sunday’s two mile five furlong Grade 1 Flogas Novice Chase, even though he won over three miles at Leopardstown at Christmas.

Jockey Paul Townend says he should be capable of the step back in trip.

There's a seven-race card at Down Royal today. 

The first is off at 1.15.
