Racing: CLASSY ACCORDION IS MUSIC TO MY EARS


Byline: Peter O'HEHIR

ACCORDION ETOILE is undoubtedly the equine star of the domestic scene this weekend and should not be opposed when he bids for back-to-back wins in the betdaq.com Hurdle at Tipperary tomorrow.

Conqueror of Grimes in this race last year, Accordion Etoile mixed with the best hurdlers in Britain and Ireland last season and ran the race of his life when finishing a close fourth behind compatriots Hardy Eustace, Harchibald and Brave Inca in the Smurfit Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham in March.

In his only subsequent start, and his most recent outing, Paul Nolan's charge filled sixth spot, after apparently failing to stay, behind another compatriot Al Eile in the Grade 1 Scottish and Newcastle Aintree Hurdle.

Michael Halford's VIOLANI, a creditable third to Thursday's Newmarket Group 3 winner Horatio Nelson at the Curragh recently, sets a fair standard in the two-year-old maiden but may have to settle for second spot behind Ballydoyle debutant FOLK TUNE. …
