Boylesports.com Tied Cottage Steeplechase (Grade 2) of £40,000.00 5-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £26,000.00 2nd - £8,000.00 3rd - £4,000.00 4th - £1,600.00 5 Declared Heavy Overcast


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - SIZING EUROPE should easily win this with no questions to answer regarding trip or ground. He has brushed aside inferior rivals again this season and while made to work at Leopardstown over Christmas, should have an easier time here. The race for second can go to Foildubh, who was hampered when pulled up at Thurles latest but on his day is a capable type. A similar comment applies to Galway Plate winner Blazing Tempo but she has appeared out of sorts on her latest two starts. Kylebeg Krystle's connections will be hoping for black-type while Imperial Shabra's sporting connections will themselves be hoping for a share of the minor prizemoney.
