Verdict

Sent off at monster prices for a couple of maiden hurdle starts in November the J P McManus-owned FIGHTING FIT finished third of 12 beaten 3L on handicap debut at Fairyhouse last month. The five-year-old looks to be on an attractive mark for that defeat in this company and can see off the attentions of Eoin Doyle's Western Rambler who posted a career best effort when finishing fourth of 10 beaten 3¾L at Tramore last month and Crack On Corrie for trainer Willie Austin. In a weak looking contest, Flash could go well at a price.
