Formscan By Donal Murphy - BOG WARRIOR received a bad fall at Leopardstown last Christimas and despite the fact he since won at Naas you would have to think it has had a lasting effect on the Tony Martin trained gelding. After winning at Naas he disappointed on his next start again at Naas in what was essentially a rematch with Flemenstar (who he had beaten earlier in the season). He then made his seasonal debut at Down Royal last month but again disappointed and fell at the last when beaten. Tony Martin has clearly decided to try and get the gelding's confidence back by running him in this handicap hurdle. He should have no problems in winning this and hopefully it will be a stepping stone for him to get back to his best. The Robert Tyner trained By The Hour, Slew Charm for Sarah Dawson and Cloudgazer for Noel Meade look the best of the rest.
