Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Steeplechase (Rated 0-116) of £12,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 5f. 1st - £8,625.00 2nd - £2,125.00 3rd - £1,000.00 4th - £625.00 13 Declared Soft (Yielding to Soft in Places on hurdle course) Fine


Formscan By Alan Magee - TARQUINIUS has shown a tendency to jump left on a number of occasions and should be suited by this venue. The Gordon Elliott-trained gelding has been generally consistent this term and can be forgiven a below par effort over an extreme distance at Fairyhouse last time. Lascalahall appears on a reasonable mark and certainly enters calculations on his second to the progressive Saoirse Dun over a similar trip at Naas last month. The booking of Mark Enright adds to confidence. Healys Bar only gave best in the straight behind Glenquest at Punchestown last time, and a number of runners in that 2m6f event showed up well in the valuable Paddy Power Chase here on Thursday.
