John Meagher Memorial Steeplechase (Listed) of £27,500.00 5-y-o plus

2m. 6f. 1st - £17,875.00 2nd - £5,500.00 3rd - £2,750.00 4th - £1,100.00 5 Declared Hurdle/Bumper: Yielding. Chase: Yielding to Soft Fine

 

Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Paul Carberry was brilliant on Roi Du Mee at Punchestown three weeks back. If the dual Grade 3 Star 'Best For Racing Coverage' Chase victor, a Grade 2 winner as well in his time, can repeat that effort here under Davy Russell, then Gordon Elliott's representative will be difficult to upstage. However on the score of value QUARRYVALE is preferred. This Beneficial mare has put up some noteworthy performances at Thurles in the past, winning three from three over fences at the venue. She reappeared here after a break when fifth over hurdles a fortnight back. That should leave her spot-on for this assignment and she holds Bostons Angel (struggling badly to recapture glory days) on that evidence. Wexford one, two, from twelve days ago, Ballinahow Lady and Ordinary Man are admirably consistent and the latter has a squeak as he could be played nicely late on with plenty of pace likely.
