Entries for the €75,000 Grade A Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase at Fairyhouse on Sunday 20th January were released today.

The entries include the Evan Williams trained William’s Wishes who will be seeking to win his sixth race on the trot following his success at Sandown at the weekend.

He could be joined by Nicky Henderson's Tanks For That who would be set to carry top weight of 11st 10lbs following on from his runner up position in the Grand Annual Chase in Cheltenham last March.

The home team will be headed by last week’s Thurles Grade 3 winner Call The Police, from the all-conquering stable of Willie Mullins. He is one of six entries for the Closutton Maestro who also has the 2011 Galway Plate winner Blazing Tempo among his team.

2011 Ladbrokes Irish Grand National winner Organisedconfusion will be reverting to the shorter trip in a bid to return to winning ways and collect the trophy for Arthur Moore, son of Dan Moore whom the race is named in memory of.

The seven race card also features the Listed Solerina Mares Novice hurdle over 2m 2f. This race will be an ideal prep for the new Grade 1 Mares novice hurdle at the Fairyhouse Easter festival.

The Ward Union Hunt is having a fundraising dinner on the afternoon and they will be supporting the 3m 1f handicap chase on the card.

The first race on the day will be at 1.05 pm.
