Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-109) of £12,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £8,625.00 2nd - £2,125.00 3rd - £1,000.00 4th - £625.00 15 Declared Soft To Heavy (Heavy In Places) Overcast


Formscan By Gary Carson - WHOSAIDSO looks on a nice mark here back over hurdles and although he's maybe not the most straight forward he looks worth a chance. He was way out of his league behind Midnight Game last time but should be better for that run which was his first after a long absence. Having ended on a mark of 110 over fences when last seen he has to be a contender off 9lb lower over timber. Misca Musca won well at Navan and it looked a decent contest that he was fourth in off this new mark at Gowran last month. He has to be a big player here. Fair Dilemma was hard pushed to score off 95 when last seen over timber but is an improver over fences and given that he is rated 121 over the larger obstacles he could still be well enough handicapped here. Imperial Shabra rarely runs a bad race and could sneak into a place. William Wordsworth may have been no match for the winner High Desert over fences at Tramore but it was still an improved effort and he could get involved here if reproducing that effort turned out again so quickly.
