Overthetop over-came a less than ideal passage in the first division of the four-year-old geldings’ at Ballindenisk to win. Having been given a patient ride, the debutant faced a wall of horses having jumped the third last and had to thread his way through most of the field in the home straight. To his credit the son of Flemensfirth showed a nice turn off foot in the closing stages, quickening up smartly to win by a length and a half. Perhaps value for more than the winning margin suggests this well-bred sort is from a family of winners and cost €115,000 as a store. Going forward he looks sure to make an impact under rules.
