Formscan By Alan Magee - A small field but none the less an interesting contest to get the Thyestes meeting underway, although it is very hard to ignore the claims of the Willie Mullins yard who hold a very strong line on what is required in the juvenile hurdle division. The champion trainer has the likes of impressive winners Diakali and Blood Cotil this season, and another of his four-year-old’s Fatcatinthehat held a clear advantage when falling at the last to let Hartside gain a fortunate victory at Punchestown on New Year’s Eve. DOGARA himself made a pleasing start in a modest enough event at the Limerick Christmas meeting, and is likely to improve again with that experience under his belt. Dalasiri stepped up considerably from his Leopardstown debut to score with some style at Cork. The Sabrina Harty-trained grey caused a major stir in the ring that day, and interestingly gave beat Spot The Pro (third) a bigger beating than the selection did at Limerick.
