Gowran Park Racing Club 2013 Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-116) of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 10 Declared Heavy Fine but cold


Formscan By Gary Carson - SELECTION BOX looks nicely treated here in light of his success over fences at Galway at the end of last month. He went up to 126 over fences after that victory and runs off a 13lb lower mark now over timber. Young jockey Liam McKenna take a further 7lb off which leaves him with a nice racing weight. Raajih ran really well without getting to the front two at Down Royal last time and looks a threat here despite the 3lb rise. The only worry about him would be that he has most of his form on better ground across the water and the heavy is a bit of a question mark. Happy New Year ran well to chase home Followmeuptocarlow at Punchestown last time but has been hit with a 6lb rise for that which looks plenty for a runner-up effort. The step up in trip seemed to do the trick for Jupitor at Punchestown last time but a mark of 116 looks stiff enough for his handicap debut.
