In the opening maiden hurdle at Leopardstown, Foxrock's racecourse debut for Ted Walsh is attracting plenty of support. The point-to-point winner at Loughrea in October has been backed down to 11/8 from 7/4.

Sir Des Champs is proving popular in the featured Lexus Chase at 3pm. Punters believe he will turn the tables on Flemenstar and that has seen his price contract to 9/4 from 3/1.

Charlie Swan's Hit The Headlines is living up to his name in the 1.55 as money has forced his price down to 6/1 from 9s. In the same race Casimir Road and Owennacurra Milan are both 16/1 from 25/1 in quite a busy betting heat.

Swan also trains Tangled Web who is a very solid favourite in the bumper at 3.35. He now trades around 6/4 having been 5/2. Bally Longford has gone the other way drifting from 15/8 to 5/2. Hurt is also weak in this contest, out from 3/1 to 9/2.

Pacelli Road is a notable non-runner in the 12.35 over in Limerick. This has led to a major revision of the market with Dogora now 4/5 from 2/1.

Ladbrokes have seen money for Castlerock Rose in the 1.05. They have her at 3/1 from 4s.
