Flemenstar to run in Lexus Chase

20 December 2012 05:13:20 EST

Peter Casey has confirmed that Flemenstar will take part in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown on 28th December.

It will be Flemenstar's first test over three miles after the seven-year-old thrashed Willie Mullins' previously unbeaten chaser Sir Des Champs in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase.

The Gold Cup is the main objective and we'll know on the 28th if he is a Gold Cup horse.

Casey is thrilled with Flemenstar's form and is already turning his thoughts towards Cheltenham. Flemenstar is 5/4 to win the Lexus Chase.

"Since the John Durkan Memorial, there has been no bother and no problem, but he's been more than ticking over - he cantered three miles today," said Casey. "He'll do the last of his work on Sunday at the Curragh.

"The Gold Cup is the main objective and we'll know on the 28th if he is a Gold Cup horse."

Sir Des Champs, 11/4 to win the Lexus Chase, Bog Warrior (999/1), First Lieutenant (14/1) and Quito De La Roque will also take part in the Lexus Chase as will Sizing Europe (999/1), Rubi Light, Tidal Bay and Midnight Chase.
