RSM Farrell Grant Sparks Supporting Longford GAA Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-109) of £10,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 4f. 1st - £7,245.00 2nd - £1,785.00 3rd - £840.00 4th - £525.00 13 Declared Heavy (Soft To Heavy in Places) Overcast


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - GALLANT OSCAR is a half-brother to Enterprise Park from the family of Risk Of Thunder and he's a speculative pick on his handicap bow. Denis Quinn's charge, showed plenty 'between the flags' and when with Rebecca Curtis cross-channel. He races in familiar colours, those of Garrett Kelly, many will likely recall his seven time winner, Lotomore Lad. Eddie Power's mount surely has something to offer from a mark of 95 and whether Gallant Oscar will benefit from his first taste of handicap action, or be ready to go on attempt number one, is the big question. Plenty have more solid claims, with Riche Deegan's 7Ib claim likely to put Followmeuptocarlow right in the mix. Considering how well Oliver McKiernan's horses are going, you'd have to consider Happy New Year with just a feather-weight on his back. At the other end of the handicap both Lady Olwyn and Mr Eko come here in winning form and deserve maximum respect. Dog Barrel Hill is better than he showed last time. Courtncatcher is fairly consistent and you could see him in the shake-up again. Derrinlanna won a charity race at Naas on her latest public appearance.
