Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Off a mark of 109 CLOUGHMILE did the business here a year ago and we'll take her to follow up. Now on a rating of 117, Tom O'Brien claims 7Ibs to make it a case of very near identical terms to twelve months previous. Cloughmile came on for the addition of a first-time tongue-strap at Limerick three weeks back and she could well be primed for a big performance now. Miss Pepperpot was fourth in this event in 2011 and again Francis Flood's eight-year-old should be there or thereabouts. Our Girl Salley has a very workable mark for her first go in this sphere and she'll justifiably be very popular with punters. She's a tad short on experience over the larger obstacles though. Robert Tyner has booked Andrew Lynch for Oscars Business and she looks sure to be involved. From the family of Dawn Run, Rising Time is lightly-weighted and with Bryan Cooper up, she could well challenge for a place in the frame.
