Kells Maiden Hurdle of £10,000.00 4-y-o

2m. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 14 Declared Heavy Overcast and cold


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - UN ATOUT was a very good bumper winner last January and, while off the track since, is likely to be well primed here. He looks a horse with a real future and connections are likely to be in no hurry with him so early in his career. This is a hot contest though and Some Article and Fickle Fortune are the obvious dangers. Some Article, sold to J.P. McManus after his impressive Punchestown bumper win in which useful hurdler Seefood finished fifth, is himself likely to have been given time to mature and looks a smart prospect who could easily figure. Fickle Fortune is a smart bumper mare, is race-fit and should go well on her hurdle debut. She may however lack the class of a high class gelding. It is hard to make a case for any of the remainder winning.
