Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Sarabad has been disappointing but Willie Mullins said in a recent stable tour "you might find he has a nice handicap mark," so he's much respected if the betting indicates he's fancied. Bottle Rattler won a bumper here over this distance. Road To Riches and Plan Again have shown Bottle Rattler's sire, Gamut, in a good light in recent times and Philip Rothwell's charge could have a nice future ahead of him. Surely the market will give us a good indication of what's expected with Ussius. Sizing Jo'burg doesn't look like he's one of Henry de Bromhead's leading lights so we'll plum for the Gordon Elliott-trained ANTHEM ROYALE. This fellow's form is eye-catching when you consider he's finished behind Bonisland and Road To Riches to date. Paul Carberry's booking for Anthem Royale is encouraging, as was Elliott's summation in a recent Irish Field stable tour. The Cullentra handler said: "He had a nice run in a bumper and while he was well beaten that day, he has done well since and he looks well up to winning one. Chasing will be his game down the road."
