2m. 3f. 120yds. 1st - £7,245.00 2nd - £1,785.00 3rd - £840.00 4th - £525.00 10 Declared Heavy Raining


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - They've both won more than once 'between the flags,' the pair are comparatively new to the handicapping ranks and we'll take a chance that COUNT SALAZAR and Cherrys Son can be in the thick of things here. His recent form figures mightn't be overly encouraging but given the fact that Eoin Doyle's horses are in flying form and that he's got a course win to his name, Count Salazar gets the nod. At his best there's no doubt that he can win races off a mark of 101. Cherrys Son has an identical official rating. A big performance seems assured from John Neilan's dual 'points' scorer, making his handicap bow now. Killcara Boy was 'robbed' late on by Fever Pitch at Clonmel 20 days back. As a previous course winner at Greenmount Park, Killcara Boy has to be the fore on any short-list for this winnable heat. Another victorious at Limerick in the past, Ardglen has to enter calculations in first-time blinkers. He's at the veteran stage now but with three wins to his name, including a hurdling success here in 2009, Yeoman is entitled to respect.
