Formscan By Gary Carson - The form of MISCA MUSCA's win at Navan looks really strong and he can defy a 7lb rise for that victory. The second and third then were running off lower marks over timber than their chase ratings and the runner-up Lead Kindly Light has gone on to score over the larger obstacles since. The selection is only four and was having just his fifth start at Navan so looks open to further improvement. Treat Yourself landed a bit of a touch here last month and looks an obvious danger. He was slapped with an 11lb rise for that victory though and with Gareth Malone also claiming 7lb off his back last time he has a much tougher task at the weights now. Call Rog kept on nicely when fourth on his handicap debut at Thurles and may just need a bit further than this having won over two-and-a-half miles at Wexford previously. Marshim has been running well off similar marks but may just be vulnerable to progressive types.
