Pertemps Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) of £24,000.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £15,600.00 2nd - £4,800.00 3rd - £2,400.00 4th - £960.00 25 Declared Heavy Overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - COLBERT STATION is of obvious interest in a qualifier race where long-term plots are traditionally made. The selection is an Aintree National candidate but still looks very well treated over hurdles (second to handicap blot Roi Du Mee on his latest hurdle start). He possesses more than enough ability to win this and gain a rise to get into the weights for a (guessing) tilt at the Final at Cheltenham. Fahamore has been in great form and can still prove competitive on his hat-trick bid while Dushrembrandt, who skipped the Christmas period, will be suited by the test of stamina. Blissful Moment steps up in trip and appears the pick of Noel Meade's trio on jockey bookings. Coole Avenue was just behind the selection over hurdles at Navan but disappointed since while last year's Series Final runner-up Catch Me is best watched for the time being.
