2m. 1st - £25,675.00 2nd - £7,900.00 3rd - £3,950.00 4th - £1,580.00 6 Declared Heavy Overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - It is now abundantly clear why DON COSSACK was so comprehensively beaten (before falling) at Navan in December with his conqueror then Pont Alexandre proving himself a real star on his latest win. DON COSSACK is without doubt just killing time over hurdles, ahead of a chasing career, but can show his true worth here and should have every chance in this hot race. Mozoltov is himself a chaser in the making and while he takes a big step up in grade, has proven himself a fair type and carries a nice reputation. Ned Buntline is himself a 'talking horse' and while a good winner of his maiden over Christmas, the runner-up has since been beaten. That said Ned Buntline remains a horse of potential but how good he actually is will be answered here. Mumbo Jumbo might need to improve to win while Tramore winners Starkie and especially Waydownsouth look to have their work cut out to win.
