2m. 4f. 1st - £48,750.00 2nd - £15,000.00 3rd - £7,500.00 4th - £3,000.00 5 Declared Soft (Heavy In Places) Light rain


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - I personally wouldn't be falling over myself to back Arvika Ligeonniere, Buckers Bridge or Dedigout at the forecast prices on Friday afternoon. In fairness Dedigout looks a bit special, Arvika Ligeonniere could be anything and Buckers Bridge has done nothing wrong so far. However in such exalted company I'd prefer to play at more attractive odds, like those appearing beside the names of Pride Of The Artic and TEXAS JACK. The former has given connections a great time of it but he moves up in company now. Texas Jack meanwhile, won a red-hot event at Naas last time and that form was franked by Make A Track at Thurles on Thursday. Noel Meade's Curtain Time gelding has to take another step forward now but he's value to do so.
