Caffrey's Bar And Restaurant Of Batterstown Handicap Steeplechase (Grade C) (Rated 0-140) of £27,500.00 5-y-o plus

3m. 5f. 1st - £18,525.00 2nd - £5,700.00 3rd - £2,850.00 4th - £1,140.00 12 Declared Soft (Heavy In Places) Light rain


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Tarquinius got 10Ibs for a Punchestown success fifteen days back but he jumped to his left that day and he may not get away with a similar fencing technique in this. Ardglen was a bit unfortunate last time out and with plenty going for him here, the dour stayer should get involved. Highdownhill is bidding for a hat-trick and he has every chance you'd imagine, but as a son of Montjeu perhaps three miles five will stretch him that bit too much. With just nine stone ten on his back SPOT THE BOSS is a sporting selection. Oliver McKiernan's charge showed himself to be in possession of stamina in abundance at Navan last March and he gets the chance to prove as much now.
