26/04 - This week one I fancy for next year is Fakir D'oudaries in the Ryanair. A good second to Allaho in this year's renewal, he was beaten some 12 lengths. With Allaho seemingly having a tilt at the Champion Chase next season and dropping in trip I think Fakir D'oudaries is the next best in this division. He was beginning to look a nearly horse with many seconds but won very impressively in the Melling at Aintree. He has found his trip having been tried at 2 miles and not quite having the pace and seemingly not being suited to the 3 miles when trying that at Leopardstown. There seems to be few alternatives in terms of races for him and as long as he stays fit this will be where he ends up.
