Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Tom McCourt fields two here and his COPPER DOCK gets the nod. Karen Kenny has ridden him once before and indeed he's gone well for a lady rider in the past – winning three under Amy Parsons. Six times a winner here, Copper Dock landed this race last year and we'll take a chance on him repeating the dose. Pencil Hill has performed well off a break before and he's respected under Megan Carberry. The other three may bring better recent form into this event but in a trappy heat I'd prefer to be on something 'at a price.'
