Formscan By Michael Graham - KNOCKGRAFFON KING has been running in some hot races behind the likes of Dedigout, Mount Benbulben and Boston Bob. He wasn’t a factor in those three chases, but this looks a better level to get off the mark in. He has shown plenty of talent in hurdle and bumper races and has the assistance of Paul Carberry in this beginners chase. Golanbrook, the likely favourite, is closely matched with the selection on hurdles ratings and has put in two respectable efforts in his novice chase appearances. At the prices I would rather be with Meade and Carberry’s charge as he may have more scope for improvement. Rupert Lamb was beaten a long way behind Sword Of Destiny but represents Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh and there will be more to come.
