Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-123) of £17,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1f. 1st - £11,730.00 2nd - £2,890.00 3rd - £1,360.00 4th - £850.00 11 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - After going into the notebook at Christmas with a Limerick third placed effort, BARNEYS HONOUR duly delivered at Navan last time. The handicapper gave him 14Ibs for that success but he did it in great style at Proudstown Park and he could well be capable of more on outing number three for Gordon Elliott. Fair Dilemma ran down the field at Limerick yesterday and it'd be a surprise if he turned out again. Whatdreamsrmadeof came good in convincing fashion last time and she has to be respected. The same goes for another bang-in-form mare, Shesonlyahorse. You'd imagine Eoin Doyle will have his pair, Alf Wright and Chebona Bula well-primed for this assignment. A prominent showing from either wouldn't surprise. Dual course winner Treat Yourself could be in the grip of the handicapper now.
