Formscan By Gary Carson - TAMMYS HILL looks a class act here and should win this before heading to Cheltenham. He looked set to collect at Leopardstown last time but just got run out of it in the closing stages by last season's champion hunter Salsify. He had two victories over that rival previously this season and with connections feeling he may just have needed the run last time he looks to be one of the leading hunter chasers about this term. Battlefront is prolific between the flags and gets a nice pull at the weights here. Although he has racked up nine straight point victories this looks tougher against an opponent the calibre of Tammys Hill. Good Egg, Warne, Montana Slim and Solstice Knight were all well beaten at Leopardstown behind Tammys Hill and look held. Northern Alliance was a decent sort in the past but his run at Tyrella earlier this month leaves him a good bit to find.
