Start The New Year @ Fairyhouse Handicap Hurdle of £14,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £10,005.00 2nd - £2,465.00 3rd - £1,160.00 4th - £725.00 8 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Alan Magee - ACRIVEEN has progressed really well this term, and ran a cracker here last time when bidding for a hat-trick in the valuable handicap won by King Of Queens. He should still be competitive despite a 14lb rise for that recent run of success. Speed Dial is another in good form of late over this trip, and seems best when held up for a late challenge. Miriam's Dream would have been on the shortlist for this but failed to really sparkle on his handicap debut at Punchestown on New Years Eve, and could be considered an unlikely runner. Total Reality has shaped quite nicely in recent months on the Flat at Dundalk, and could be a danger to all.
