1.15 ML Lynch Civil Engineering Maiden Hurdle 2m 100y

Karakhan, who went very close at Bellewstown last month, can shed his maiden tag at the sixth attempt. Denis Hogan’s five-year-old followed up that run with another solid effort at Galway, before disappointing when reverting to the flat a few days later. Perhaps that latter race came too soon but either way, he looks to hold strong claims here.
