Mongey Communications Novice Handicap Hurdle of £11,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £7,590.00 2nd - £1,870.00 3rd - £880.00 4th - £550.00 14 Declared Soft Overcast


Formscan By Gary Carson - GRANGE looks an improving sort and can defy the 11lb rise he got for his victory at Punchestown last month. He won with plenty in hand that day and the form looks solid enough with the third going on to finish placed again since. A few of these come into this in good heart and Treat Yourself looks an obvious danger. His task was made a bit easier on the run-in last time when Call Rog stumbled but chances are he would have won anyway. The 7lb he received for that win is offset by Gareth Malone, who rode him to the first of his wins and is back on board taking a valuable 7lb off his back. Doc Hollywood is another seeking a hat-trick after wins at Thurles and Fairyhouse. Of the three that won last time he may have been most harshly treated, however, having gone up 13lb for his last win. Flying Light stayed on from the back when last seen in a handicap hurdle at Galway in late October. He was maybe better than his finishing position that day and could get involved here.
