Proudstown Handicap Hurdle (Grade C) of £27,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 7f. 1st - £17,875.00 2nd - £5,500.00 3rd - £2,750.00 4th - £1,100.00 19 Declared Heavy Overcast and cold


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - ROI DU MEE follows a similar form pattern to his owner's Bog Warrior, an easy handicap winner recently. The selection has never contested a handicap hurdle and hasn't raced over hurdles for two years but has flourished as a chaser in the meantime. He is a solid Graded chaser and should prove hard to beat in what, on the face of it, should be a hard handicap but Jane Mangan's 7lbs claim is the icing on the cake. One time high class Karabak was in touch when falling last time and is interesting while Jetson can prove competitive from his big weight. Coole Avenue is another in good form and A Fine Young Man is aided by his rider's claim. Colbert Station, reverting from chasing, could also go well but has been beaten from similar hurdle marks in the past while Start Me Up needs to leave a pulled up chase effort behind.
