After landing a bit of a gamble when providing this column with a winner last Monday Hired Hand (5:20) can get off the mark on the level on Tuesday evening at Ballinrobe.
Charles O’Brien’s five-year-old landed a maiden hurdle just 8 days ago and, now he’s up in trip, the High Chaparral gelding can score on the Flat.
The pick of Hired Hand’s form on the level is his second on debut on soft ground at Limerick and the form of his two placed efforts in bumpers reads really well, especially in light of Steps To Freedom victory at Aintree.
A smooth traveller, he can make up in to a useful dual-purpose performer during the summer months.
