Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - It is hard not to be taken with Gold Well as a sire and given BALLY LONGFORD'S connections, he is equally difficult to ignore. Willie Mullins said of Bally Longford lately: "He didn't manage to win between the flags but shaped with promise." Indeed but for jumping frailties the former Wilson Dennison-owned and Colin McKeever-trained four-year-old would have scored in that sphere and he surely has a big chance now if the betting suggests as much. As with the previous race, this looks a good heat for Downpatrick with plenty of them bringing a sold level of form to the table. Indeed only the likes of Our Cathal or Geraldine Gold would be a truly shock winner.
Probable SP 11/8 Bally Longford, 4/1 Curley Bill, 5/1 Balboni, 8/1 Notorious Villain, Bell Weir, 10/1 So Valentino, Totally Couture, 12/1 All Fired Up, 33/1 Our Cathal, Geraldine Gold.
