The Sportsman's Verdict
ACTIVE FORCE boasts some rock-solid bumper form, chasing home the likes of Sancta Simona and Battleoverdoyen before winning at Limerick over the Christmas period, and with a point-to-point victory under his belt, he looks sure to play a leading role on his hurdling debut. Elixir D'Ainay won a bumper in France before joining Willie Mullins and a Grade 1 entry at next month's Dublin Racing Festival suggests that he has been showing plenty at home. Vision D'Honneur also merits consideration having performed well on his Irish/hurdling debut at Leopardstown on St Stephen's Day.
