Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Given his connections (the Dick Francis style Kilbeggan gamble on D Four Dave in the summer of 2010 is recalled), much depends on how Circus Act (out of a Group 1 winner in Carry On Katie) goes in the betting here. If the market gives positive signals, then take the hint, because off 47 in this sort of company, the former Godolphin runner won't have many better chances. If not, INDIAN SCOUT, who has turned into a good performer at Dundalk, might be able to defy a 240 day absence. He is attempting to win his third race in his last four outings at this track and indeed he only went down by a head last time out. The phrase tough as nails could well be applied to the selection, though it's a bit surprising to see the usual cheek-pieces left off for this run. It's encouraging that Eoin Doyle's horses are in flying form and he said recently in an Irish Field stable tour: "He developed into a grand horse for us last year on the all-weather at Dundalk but he met with a little setback so he missed most of this year. He is back in good form again now and the plan is to go for a mile and a half handicap at Dundalk in the next few weeks. We'll send him over hurdles at some stage." This is only an extended mile and quarter event so you'd like to see him prove strong in the market to bolster confidence. Alghanem, Saint By Day and Can We Dare are among some of the main opposition and all are respected. With first time tongue-straps deployed, War Room and The Gave could improve.
