Woodlands House Hotel Hurdle of £13,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 3f. 1st - £9,315.00 2nd - £2,295.00 3rd - £1,080.00 4th - £675.00 6 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Vincent Finegan - This contest revolves around PRINCE DE BEAUCHENE. The Willie Mullins' trained import is firmly on course for the Aintree Grand National and reverts to hurdles here over an inadequate trip. He would also prefer better ground, but it is difficult to find a reasonable alternative in this trappy race. Tony Martin has his string in good form, well, all except Edeymi. This 4-Y-O looked to be going places when second in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham in March, but has barely beaten a rival in three subsequent runs. The locally trained Dushybeag can be given some chance on recent form while Venture Capital is taking a big jump in class following a Wexford maiden victory.
