Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Not sold for 190,000 pounds at Brightwells Cheltenham Horses in Training Sale in the middle of last month, hopefully GOLANTILLA will live up to his billing here. There's no doubt that there are any number of potential dangers lurking amongst the opposition but it seems pretty certain that Sean O'Brien has an exciting prospect on his hands in Golantilla. He was expected to deliver at the first time of asking at Avaune nearly four weeks ago and in the hands of today's rider, Ciaran Fennessy, he impressed all present, slamming Concordin to the tune of ten lengths. What credentials Unbreakable brings to the table though and this could be the most interesting heat of the day. He is a grandson of Shawiya, he's a half-brother to Staying Article and he was signed for by Margaret O'Toole at 145,000 Euros at Tattersalls Ireland Derby National Hunt Sale in the summer of 2011. Tony Martin has booked Nina Carberry for the mount and of course he could be anything. Andiamos will need to leave previous form behind but that's hardly outside the bounds of possibility. Here I Am looked a nice type 'between the flags' and he could go well at a price. There are several others that need considering too including Leavethelighton, Our Rainbow Dream, Overbury Prince, Golden Rascal, Shanpallas and Upsanddowns.
