I bought him last spring from Cheltenham after he was a good third in his only Irish Point to Point. He did all the hard work from four furlongs out and then I think he was unlucky to get collared by two very good horses that day and he was certainly good value for what he has done. The form from his race is looking very strong. He is a good-looking horse who ran well on his debut at Chepstow where the form looking strong for the first four home. He then ran well at Warwick and will now have a summer holiday ready for next season. I'm looking forward to seeing how he goes, he could be interesting.
p2p.ie analysis: Checkitout made a very promising debut at Loughanmore when finishing third to The Very Man in a competitive four-year-old maiden. The Denis Murphy-trained runner travelled well throughout and tracked the leaders from flag fall before progressing to lead from the penultimate fence only to be just headed on the run to the final obstacle where he ran on gamely where there was a further 10 lengths back to the four placed horse. The son of Salutino is from the family of the promising grade one winner Black Op as well as 16-time winner Balthazar King. Checkitout is a very exciting youngster that is bred to develop into a smart sort on the track and could have a lot to offer to new connections.
