Formscan By Gary Carson - JOHANNISBERGER can gain a deserved win over fences here. His jumping let him down slightly here last time but it wasn't a disgrace to finish fourth behind a smart sort in Benefficient. His previous efforts were good enough to claim this. He had Mackeys Forge behind when chasing home Argocat at Limerick and should again hold that rival. He'llberemembered has produced a couple of decent placed efforts since going over fences and the mark of 123 that he has been awarded sets a good standard here. He had no chance with Marito at Thurles last time but must rank as a threat now. Madam Bovary showed some decent form over hurdles and although she never really figured behind Mikael D'Haguenet on her chase debut at Punchestown she can be expected to improve from that and could have place prospects.
