Pertemps Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) of £24,000.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £15,600.00 2nd - £4,800.00 3rd - £2,400.00 4th - £960.00 30 Declared Soft (Yielding to Soft in Places on hurdle course) Fine


Formscan By Michael Graham - JETSON can win this again for Jessica Harrington and Robbie Power. The seven-year-old likes it round Foxrock and is a tough campaigner in big fields. He handles heavy going, is used to carrying big weights and is a sporting each way bet in this 30-runner handicap in which stakes should be kept to a minimum. He impressed last year in this race. There are dangers aplenty as there should be in a valuable handicap. It would be no surprise to see Novarov bounce back to form as he relishes a scrap in testing conditions. Since winning at Galway in August though he has leapt up in the handicap and may need a bit of relief from the handicapper as his last two runs weren’t impressive. Marlay Park for in-form Mags Mullins is worth keeping an eye on after showing some form at Thurles when runner-up. Darroun and Apt Approach represent Willie Mullins and are sure to be popular.
