Home Of The Ladbrokes Irish Grand National Novice Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-102) of £8,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 4f. 1st - £5,520.00 2nd - £1,360.00 3rd - £640.00 4th - £400.00 7 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - FORJOETHEPAINTER landed a gamble at Limerick over Christmas (Five Point Plan well behind) and, despite a rise, races from a low enough mark. The trip and ground shouldn't prove a problem. Tipped Up Harry is a dual handicap winner and holds obvious claims following his narrow win at Cork, when the third placed horse finished well behind. Bumper winner Peace In The West is interesting on his second handicap start while Mister First possesses a much higher chase mark but has failed to take advantage of his lower hurdle rating. Multiple ptp winner Lord Multifix has something to prove following his Down Royal run.
