Demesne Maiden Hurdle of £7,500.00 5-y-o plus

2m. 4f. 1st - £5,175.00 2nd - £1,275.00 3rd - £600.00 4th - £375.00 11 Declared Soft To Heavy, Soft In Places Overcast but dry


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - BLAZING SONNET has been particularly unlucky to have come up against well handicapped horses on each of her last few starts and while rated just 102, is possibly capable of better and has Jane Mangan claiming a valuable 7lbs. Un Beau Roman will have less supporters than on his previous two starts but cannot be dismissed completely, coming from these quarters. Tabac Brun is the only winner in the race and while he gives away plenty weight, has obvious claims. Noble Pageant can be inconsistent and still needs plenty to go his way to win while Hunting Party possibly needs to improve further to win. Angelas Money looks limited enough but takes a step down from his latest Leopardstown run.
