Q8 OILS Juvenile Hurdle (Grade 2) of £42,500.00 3-y-o

2m. 1st - £27,625.00 2nd - £8,500.00 3rd - £4,250.00 4th - £1,700.00 7 Declared Yielding to Soft (soft in places) Raining


Formscan By Gary Carson - It was hard not to be impressed with the style of BLOOD COTIL's victory at Fairyhouse and he looks a top notch prospect. The horse he beat then, Hazariban, is probably no world beater but is still a decent enough yard stick and has run well to be placed again since. Willie Mullins keeps on unearthing stars and is particularly good at sourcing them from France. Blood Cotil could be another shining light for the yard. The obvious threat is Our Conor who hasn't done anything wrong in his two victories to date over jumps. He's a solid performer and seems to be progressing but having to give 3lb to the selection may prove a tough task. Our Conor should again hold Stocktons Wing and South South West, who chased him home at Fairyhouse. Fisher is a dual winner over hurdles already but was put in his place at Kempton when last seen in October and his victor was well beaten in a Grade 2 last month. He may just be short of this grade.
