2m. 4f. 1st - £8,625.00 2nd - £2,125.00 3rd - £1,000.00 4th - £625.00 12 Declared Hurdle/Bumper: Soft to Heavy. Chase: Heavy Overcast


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - When returning to action off a 222 day break last time and also tacking fences for the first time, it was hardly surprising to see TERMINAL relatively easy to back at Fairyhouse three weeks back. In the circumstances he put in a most satisfactory performance when runner-up to Canaly and a repeat of that effort should be good enough now. Carlos Fandango has always looked like a horse that could do well at this game and the local runner could well be primed for a big run here. The Way We Were hasn't been seen since a pulled up effort in the Galway Hurdle. Himself and Terminal hold an identical rating of 131 over flights so if Edward O'Grady's runner happened to be fancied then his claims would have to be taken seriously.
