Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Fatcatinthehat is rated 86 on the level whilst the flat assessor has ONE FINE DAY on 90. I'd be looking for an angle to take on the likely skimpy favourite Fatcatinthehat and there are reasons for giving One Fine Day a chance of upstaging the 'jolly.' Firstly she has a win and two other creditable efforts to her name at this venue and her last run is better than it looks on paper. The daughter of Choisir was tightened for room at a vital stage at Cork before finishing fourth to Dalasiri. That grey showed the form in a good light with a commendable second placing at Gowran on Thyestes Day. Fatcatinthehat will undoubtedly he hard to beat, after his unfortunate fall at Punchestown on New Year's Eve, when he had a race firmly in the bag when departing at the last. However, at the likely prices, I'll side with One Fine Day. Others that can definitely contest for a place in the frame are Hazariban, Honourable Emperor, Ibsen, Vedani and Welsh Nayber.
