FormscanBy Alan Magee - ZAIDI handled soft ground when winning a point-to-point for Ellmarie Holden and again when drawing clear from over a furlong out to take a Thurles bumper in good style this spring. The Gordon Elliott-trained gelding was switched to hurdles at the Fairyhouse Easter meeting and beat all bar chief market rival Canal End in a 24-runner maiden over this trip. Mint Boy was up with the pace until dropping away quickly after the penultimate flight in that Fairyhouse maiden but the point-to-point winner is surely capable of better judged on his placed bumper form. Champagne Admiral has also shown promise in bumpers and is another to consider with Michael O’Sullivan an interesting booking on the Pat Fahy-trained gelding.
