Formscan By Alan Magee - KAKAGH seems to reserve his best form for this time of year, and is taken to step up on his recent reappearance at Punchestown. Bill Harney’s charge scored at this venue 13 months ago before being placed in last year’s renewal of this race off a few pounds higher mark than today. His form generally tailed off for the remainder of the season but he could represent a bit of value back at a familiar stomping ground. Fourth Class has had a good break since making all in good style at Killarney back in July, although this testing ground may not be in his favour. Coolharbour Breeze also likes to be up with the pace but her form can be a bit in and out, while Days Ahead has taken pretty well to fences but lacks the same experience as the selection.
