The €55,000 Guinness Handicap is the feature on the penultimate session of the week-long Listowel Festival as 10 runners have been declared for the mile-and-a-half test.

All's Quiet has proved a good money-spinner under both codes for Ado McGuinness this year, and the six-year-old gelding has strong claims following a recent impressive success over hurdles at Roscommon.

Chris Hayes, who was on board when the son of Westerner won a Ballinrobe maiden back in June, is again in the saddle and the combination may have most to fear from Ringside Support and Ibsen.

The Dermot Weld-Pat Smullen team is always to be feared at this venue, and So You Thought may provide the answer to the Bank Of Ireland Handicap.

The American-bred ran a cracker last time in the Cambridgeshire and previously handled soft ground when just denied at the Galway Festival.

The Southampton Goodwill Chase is the main focus of attention on the National Hunt section of this eight-race card, and there is nothing to choose on official figures between Val De Ferbet and the evergreen Hidden Cyclone.

Turbojet looks to have a good opportunity in the John J Galvin Maiden Hurdle, while Killarney runner-up Koroleva can go one better in the Listowel Printing Works Irish EBF Mares Bumper.

Ben Button brings up Mullins treble

Willie Mullins completed a treble at Listowel this afternoon as Ben Button readily justified evens favouritism in the concluding Devon Inn Hotel Handicap Hurdle.
