Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - At a bit of a price GOULANE VIXEN is an each-way possibility here. This one has her first go in a handicap off a manageable 91 and though her latest effort wouldn't inspire confidence, her run over the course and distance in the middle of November would give her a squeak. The Craigsteel mare was a 40/1 chance on that occasion and she kept going well, up with the speed, when eventually finishing a soundly beaten third behind the geldings, Tennis Cap and Thunder And Roses. Others to show good form at this venue are Ocean Bright, Special Token and Serra Nova (winners here) so they need to be respected. As winners on their latest appearances, Henrietta's Way and Castlerock Rose should be considered. The Blarney Rose is consistent and she promises to be on the premises again whilst High Class Show did well with the blinkers on for the first time, at Thurles 36 days ago, and she has the assistance of Mark Enright again.
