Formscan By Alan Magee - PONT ALEXANDRE has been the apple of trainer Willie Mullins’ eye ever since being snapped up in France, and the regard in which he's held was demonstrated by thrusting him straight into Grade 1 company on his first start for new connections at Navan. That judgement was more than vindicated with an authoritative win, with the smart Don Cossack well held when falling at the last. At present the sky is the limit for this strapping five-year-old, and his appearance here is awaited with bated breath. Our Vinnie is on trial for a crack at Cheltenham’s Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle and has already proved himself a stout stayer, while Ally Cascade is stepping up in distance and nicely treated by the conditions. Sizing Gold appears well held by the selection on a line through Don Cossack but this trip is a lot more to his liking.
