Horse Racing: Frost and Nicholls eye Sunday response

There was disappointment for Bryony Frost and Paul Nicholls when Frodon finished down the field in the Irish Gold Cup.

But the pair are hoping for a better outcome on Sunday with 7/2 Greaneteen, their second runner at the Dublin Racing Festival.

Chacun Pour Soi back to defend

Greaneteen tackles the Dublin Chase over 2m 1f, where the biggest barrier to success is favourite Chacun Pour Soi, who has won the race for the last two years for trainer Willie Mullins.

Chacun Pour Soi is at his best at Leopardstown, where Greaneteen has never raced. But when the pair last met, at Sandown, it was Greaneteen who was the victor, handing out a convincing beating to his odds-on rival in the Tingle Creek.

Since then Greaneteen has finished a decent second to Shiskin at Kempton, while Sunday is Chacun Pour Soi's first outing since his Sandown defeat.

Chacun Pour Soi is 4/6 but Nicholls, who has won with three of his last four runners in Ireland, believes there could be another upset.

He said: "Greaneteen is in great shape and I think he's got a big chance. Chacun Pour Soi is the one to beat but I'm just hoping they don't get too much rain. I was going for the nice ground and I pray it doesn't rain too much.

"He ran very well in the Tingle Creek, which was the day we had him ready for. I ran him a bit quick after that win, but he still ran a nice race to finish second to Shishkin [in the Desert Orchid]. I just hope it doesn't get too testing."
