Christmas Party Nights At Dundalk Stadium Handicap of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

1m. 4f. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 15 Declared Standard Showery


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - Davy Russell's presence on top weight Discoteca (Russell gets down to 10st 8lbs) adds a novelty factor but the gelding, who won from a mark of 85 in the past in Britain, makes his seasonal reappearance ane is possibly best watched with a bigger engagement at Ascot (Ladbroke Handicap Hurdle) in just 10 days time. JACKSONSLADY is a solid proposition though, contesting just her second handicap. She is a smart mare over jumps and is aided by her rider's very valuable 7lbs claim. Fosters Cross is another smart jumper but has the Paddy Power Chase as a possible target over Christmas. Shake The Bucket is a consistent sort who can figure while Prince Of Fashion is in good form following his recent win here.
