Blue Square Bet Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-109) of £11,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 4f. 1st - £7,590.00 2nd - £1,870.00 3rd - £880.00 4th - £550.00 16 Declared Heavy Overcast


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - He's rated 121 over fences, he competes here off 101, so it isn't difficult to see why LOOKOUTNOW will be fancied by many. A hardy likeable type for a stable in form, the selection won an ordinary beginners chase at Downpatrick last time but he showed his prowess in this sphere too with back-to-back handicap hurdle wins around this time last year. You could envisage plenty of pace in this race and Eoin Doyle's Beneficial gelding is fancied to see it out best. As last time out winners, Followmeuptocarlow and Happy New Year (going for a hat-trick) have to be respected but they'll be priced accordingly. Handicap first-timer Fire Belt doesn't look over-burdened with a mark of 102. Brian Nolan also puts a tongue-strap on this seven-year-old for the initial occasion and with Ben Dalton claiming five pounds, a big performance seems assured.
