Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Beginners Steeplechase of £15,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1f. 1st - £10,695.00 2nd - £2,635.00 3rd - £1,240.00 4th - £775.00 11 Declared Heavy (Soft In Places) Mild and overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - ALDERWOOD was having his first run of the season when slipping up late at Navan, when behind eventual runner-up Darwins Fox. ALDERWOOD, a Grade 1 winning hurdler, may be capable of turning form now though with the benefit of that chase debut behind him. Darwins Fox still rates a solid danger though and is sure to be thereabouts. Archie Meade was a capable hurdler but makes his seasonal reappearance while Terminal has a similar enough hurdle rating but, while representing Willie Mullins, has a tough enough task for his chase debut. Mazuri Cowboy, Canaly and Golanbrook are each useful but may struggle to win this.%0A
