David Flynn Construction Maiden Hurdle of £8,500.00 5-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £5,865.00 2nd - £1,445.00 3rd - £680.00 4th - £425.00 15 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Un Beau Roman has French form tying in with Un Beau Matin (a decent horse now for Gigginstown House Stud) and it really is a case of waiting for the market to tell us how he might perform now. Old Pride has a grand bumper run to his name but coming off a lengthy break, parade ring inspection and the betting will guide with regard to his prospects. Considering BACK OFF MATE'S connections took this twelve months ago with Pass The Hat, and that Arthur Moore won it in recent years with Port La Chaine too, you can be sure this Old Vic gelding will be well-primed for the task at hand. He has the form to put him in the mix too. Bell Weir's owner and trainer are others that can be relied upon to have their horses fit and ready at this venue, so he has to enter calculations. Softboiledsergeant has a squeak of reaching the money on what he's shown to date but in what looks a tricky opener for punters you must also take into account the chances of the decent flat performers, Prince Jock and Waydownsouth.
