Anglo Printers Maiden Hurdle of £10,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 6f. 1st - £7,245.00 2nd - £1,785.00 3rd - £840.00 4th - £525.00 10 Declared Heavy Raining


Formscan By Alan Magee - KILCREA was the pick of these in bumpers and is taken to put a disappointing hurdle debut at Tipperary behind him. The former winning pointer beat Operating at Gowran Park last term and subsequently ran well in a 2m3f winners’ race at this venue. However the ground was particularly testing when he switched to hurdles last time, and similar conditions here would have to be a concern. The one best placed to take advantage of any flaw in the selection is Shattered Dream. Unsuccessful in two point-to-point starts, he appears to be crying out for a trip after looking onepaced since switched to hurdles. Malt Gem should also appreciate this stamina test after staying on behind the impressive Un Atout at Navan.
