2m. 1st - £24,375.00 2nd - £7,500.00 3rd - £3,750.00 4th - £1,500.00 7 Declared Hurdle/Bumper: Soft. Chase: Soft to Heavy, Heavy in places Overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - BLAZING TEMPO gets weight here, particularly from Realt Dubh, and has the class to win this. She hasn't run since September but had been in good form over hurdles and represents a yard in top gear. Realt Dubh is the class horse in the race but has been a little out of sorts recently, not helped by mistakes on his last two starts. At his best he would prove difficult to beat though. Foildubh has progressed well since finishing third to Days Hotel a year ago and has solid place claims while Days Ahead is himself without a run since that Grade 2 win, 386 days ago. Ninetieth Minute is proving frustrating while Echo Bob and Let Yourself Go need to improve.
