Formscan By Thomas Weekes - MALA BEACH can gain compensation following his unfortunate exit at Leopardstown over Christmas in a race in which Thunder And Roses finished second. A loose horse ended the selection's chances when apparently still in with a real chance. Thunder And Roses finished well ahead of the selection in a bumper outing last April but prior to the Leopardstown race, MALA BEACH did run a solid race in a hot maiden at this venue. Thunder And Roses is a capable type who left a disappointing defeat at Cork behind him when running well in that Leopardstown race. There may be little between the pair here and the race looks a match on form. Elijah Gardner needs to improve to win while a similar comment applies to Clar Na Mion who has small place prospects.%0A
