Martinstown Opportunity Novice Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-109) of £12,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 2f. 50yds. 1st - £8,625.00 2nd - £2,125.00 3rd - £1,000.00 4th - £625.00 7 Declared Meeting Abandoned


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - TREAT YOURSELF is officially just 1lb well-in here but his rider's 4lbs claim should help his cause. This is not a particularly strong event and TREAT YOURSELF looks an improving type. Popmurphy, whose Flat rating curiously was almost once as high as his current hurdle mark, has been showing enough in handicaps recently to suggest he is up to winning handicaps at this level and has sound claims. Flemross was a handicap hurdle winner three runs back but is without a recent run while Mia's Vic needs to leave behind a poor recent run.
