Formscan By Gary Carson - MARASONNIEN can make it third time lucky over fences. He was turned over at odds-on on his chase debut at Navan but the horse that beat him, The Westener Boy, is a decent type. His subsequent run at Leopardstown was a good effort, when chasing home Lord Windermere, as that rival has just been touched off in a hot Grade 1 event since. A Fine Young Man ran much better on his second chase start when just finding Terminal too strong in the closing stages at Cork. That rival franked the form with a Grade 2 victory at Navan during the week and Michael Hourigan's charge could go well here. Golanbrook has performed well on his three chase starts to date and looks to have place prospects. His third behind Western Leader was given a boost with the runner-up Rupert Lamb scoring at Leopardstown since. My Murphy was third behind Rupert Lamb at Leopardstown and may be held on that form. Realt Mor is hard to weigh up on his UK form while White Star Line is capable but is returning from a break.
