Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - We'll take a chance that BENSOON, wearing cheek-pieces for the second time, can defy top-weight. The selection just lost out to Atmospheric High by three parts of a length three weeks ago. You'd have to hope that the son of Refuse To Bend, still only a three-year-old, would be right on the premises again off an unchanged mark of 65. Bensoon's stable companion, Saint By Day is also a big player with Declan McDonogh booked but he hardly has the same scope for progression as a six-year-old. Saint By Day is a course and distance winner and another victorious over track and trip is Balmont Flyer. Joanna Morgan's gelding triumphed on his second go for the yard here four weeks ago and he again has the assistance of Pat Smullen in the plate. He wasn't over-burdened with a 4Ib rise in the weights. Balmont Flyer is still lightly enough raced and off 51 you can be almost certain that he has more to offer. There are a few others with hopes too in a typically open heat.
