Paddy Power Handicap Hurdle (Rated 0-140) of £26,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £16,900.00 2nd - £5,200.00 3rd - £2,600.00 4th - £1,040.00 17 Declared Soft Fine


Formscan By Donal Murphy - Typically competitive Leopardstown handicap hurdle at this time of the year where a case can be made for nearly the whole field. FORTY FOOT TOM is the choice however and he can be expected to go close. The Daniel Miley trained gelding carries a handy weight and has plenty of factors in his favour. He has won over the trip and on the ground in the past and already won a similarly competitive contest at Gowran earlier this year. Jane Mangan has already teamed up to good effect on Roi Du Mee this season and she is partnered with another Gigginstown owned horse in the shape of Il Fenomeno here. This fellow has plenty of ability and he should run well with Mangan's valuable seven pound claim. Others with strong claims are Carrigmartin, Tennis Cap and Saint Gervais while Leah Claire should run well at a decent price on her first start for Willie McCreery.
