2m. 2f. 1st - £5,520.00 2nd - £1,360.00 3rd - £640.00 4th - £400.00 8 Declared Soft to Heavy, Heavy in places Overcast but mild


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - After becoming expensive to follow, CADSPEED was expected to do better when attracting plenty of market-support at Clonmel early last month. Ruby Walsh's mount gave an exhibition of fencing from the front that day but unfortunately for all-involved he got in too close to the last and came down when in complete control. With a rating of 126, the four time winner should now be able to get a chase victory on the board. Take your pick as to where the main opposition will emerge from but perhaps Pineau De Re could follow Cadspeed home.
