Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - There are more negatives than positives when it comes to most of these runners. Obviously any of the J P McManus trio would be capable of making their presence felt at their best, and hopefully the market can help in this regard. There are several others that could come alive in the betting too, particularly any of the five handicap first-timers. However a tentative vote is awarded to KARINGA QUEEN. Gordon Elliott has taken the trouble to book Paul Carberry for the mare, and she also sports a tongue-tie for the initial occasion. The daughter of Karinga Bay looked somewhat progressive in early summer and as a half-sister to the likes of five-time winner, Oscar Gogo, there should be more to come from her.
