Formscan By Thomas Weekes - Davy Russell's presence on top weight Discoteca (Russell gets down to 10st 8lbs) adds a novelty factor but the gelding, who won from a mark of 85 in the past in Britain, makes his seasonal reappearance ane is possibly best watched with a bigger engagement at Ascot (Ladbroke Handicap Hurdle) in just 10 days time. JACKSONSLADY is a solid proposition though, contesting just her second handicap. She is a smart mare over jumps and is aided by her rider's very valuable 7lbs claim. Fosters Cross is another smart jumper but has the Paddy Power Chase as a possible target over Christmas. Shake The Bucket is a consistent sort who can figure while Prince Of Fashion is in good form following his recent win here.
