Formscan By Michael Graham - ZUZKA looks very much the part here. On her last outing in the Grade 1 Royal Bond, she finished two and a half lengths behind Jezki from the Jessica Harrington yard. Jezki went on to frank the form in style when running away with a Grade 1 at Leopardstown on Thursday. Zuzka will handle today’s trip as she won the Grade 3 Fergus O’Toole Memorial Novice Hurdle over two miles five and the ground shouldn’t inconvenience her as it was soft to heavy in Limerick that day. Willie Mullins also runs Glens Melody who is lurking down at the bottom of the weights. This is a step up in class for the triple bumper winner who shed her maiden tag over hurdles at Clonmel. Prior to that she was eight and a half lengths in arrears of Minsk at Punchestown. She can make her presence felt today.
