Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Again I find myself referring to Mark Howard's One Jump Ahead, in reference to TWIGLINE. The 2011/12 edition of OJA stated that Twigline held entries in both the Triumph Hurdle and Cheltenham Festival bumper in her time. Previously trained by Thomas Trapenard, Twigline ran in APQS Flat races, winning on the second occasion, by three lengths at Lyon (1m 2f : Soft) in May 2010, Tonic Mellysse finished third and Tatispout finished fifth. Willie Mullins commented lately: "She's a mare with a lovely pedigree who we bought from France a while back. She's had training problems so I hope we can get her to the track in tip-top shape. Has lucky owners so I hope it continues." Akatara gets plenty of weight but she'll struggle to match Twigline if that one delivers a performance as promised. Given that she races in the colours of Voler La Vedette and that she's from the family of Valiramix and Condessa, Wild Blueberry is worth keeping an eye on.
