Gordon Elliott's Roi Du Mee aims to follow up his good win at Punchestown in the John Meagher Memorial Chase at Thurles on Thursday.

The diminutive seven-year-old claimed a few notable scalps in the Star "Best For Racing Coverage" Chase, with Grade One winners Follow The Plan and Joncol left in his wake.

Only five go to post, including Jessica Harrington's 2011 RSA Chase winner Bostons Angel but he has failed to recapture the form of his good novice campaign.

Ordinary Man, Quarryvale and Ballinahow Lady look to have a stiff task at the weights.

"He's in good nick and it's a small field which suits him because he's not very big," said Elliott.

"He came out of the Punchestown race in very good form and this looks a nice race for him. We've got Jessica Harrington's Bostons Angel to beat."
