Iron out to show strength in Fontwell hurdle

IRON BUTTERFLY is aiming to round off her first season over jumps with a first victory in the 2m2½f mares' maiden hurdle (4.10) at Fontwell.

The four-year-old, a half-sister to the decent stayer At The Money, has finished fourth in both her starts over hurdles and wears a first-time hood.

Trained by James Eustace, who has sent out two winners from his small jumps string this winter as well as bagging a couple of victories on the all-weather this year, is hopeful of a good run.

Writing on his website, he said: "It doesn't look the strongest race and the ground will be testing which will suit her so she must have a chance."

The ground at Fontwell is heavy, soft in places after the track survived a morning inspection.

Racing also takes place on the all-weather at Lingfield and Southwell on Tuesday.

Going:
Fontwell:
Heavy, soft in places
Lingfield: Standard
Southwell: Standard
