Cork Stayers Novice Hurdle (Grade 3) of £27,500.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £17,875.00 2nd - £5,500.00 3rd - £2,750.00 4th - £1,100.00 7 Declared Hurdle/Bumper: Soft. Chase: Soft to Heavy, Heavy in places Overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - ROAD TO RICHES looks the pick here having looked the part on both his racecourse starts. He takes a step up in class here but may prove too strong for Rogue Angel who was easy enough to back latest when disappointing at Gowran. Beachdale Lad was well held when contesting a reasonably hot contest at Limerick latest but has claims while Free to Dream is the only dual hurdle winner but gives away weight and was held here in a similar race latest. Dushrembrandt is a chaser in the making and is held by Free To Dream. The Crafty Butcher, which made a bad mistake latest, is proving disappointing while useful handicap chaser Qhilimar, ex-Charlie Longsdon, has his first run for Adrian Maguire but makes his hurdle debut.
