Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - FORMAL BID has certainly tested the patience of his followers but it'll be disappointing if he can't at least reach the frame in this. He's hard to win with as he showed at Wolverhampton last time but with Luke Dempsey bringing his weight down to just eight stone one now, you'd imagine the Oratorio gelding has to be right on the premises at the business end. Discovery Bay was unlucky here 9 days ago and he should again go close. Aladdins Cave and Shake The Bucket have done their connections proud with their efforts over the last few weeks and their supporters will justifiably be loath to desert them now. However the handicapper continues to up the ante on the pair. Of course Moveable Asset has more than a squeak too given his connections.
