Formscan By Gary Carson - PRETTY HAPPY has been knocking on the door for a while now and has to have a big shout in a moderate contest. Both her wins have come at the track and she rarely runs a bad race here. If she can repeat her third behind Drumlister here in September, off this same mark, that should give her the winning of this. Yeoman is also a course and distance winner and didn't run too badly when fourth over fences here last month. He reverts to timber off a lower mark and looks the danger. War Of Worlds ran much better on his handicap debut at Limerick last time when defying a starting price of 25/1. He didn't find a lot after travelling well, however, and it remains to be seen if he can repeat that. Jack The Ref was also third last time, at Downpatrick, and looks to have place prospects again in a similar standard of contest.
