FormscanBy Eamonn Murphy - Getting a little age weight allowance GENTLEMANSGAME could be able for the step-up in class after point-to-point and maiden hurdle victories. The grey could hardly have been any more impressive at Cork just over three weeks back, and he goes up markedly in trip as well here, from that two mile contest. Mouse Morris is a man of few words when it comes to his horses, but one could see in the Everardsgrange handler, that he’s very much looking forward to the future with the youngster. He was bred by Yorton Farm Stud with broadcaster Nick Luck’s mother, Maggie, and it was interesting to note Donnchadh Doyle’s comments after Gentlemansgame won a Curraghmore point-to-point for him. The sharp County Wexford operator revealed that he’d bought the selection’s Blue Bresil half-brother for 80K back in August (as a three-year-old), on the strength of what he’d seen from the exciting Gentlewave gelding at home. The only mare in the line-up, Angels Dawn, has a big task as she begins over hurdles. You wouldn’t be safely ruling anything else out though. Having said that, and albeit their efforts came in graded company, but Fighter Allen and Young Ted need to leave behind most recent form.
