Formscan By Alan Magee - QUARTETTO made a bright start for his current trainer at Naas earlier this month. The nine-year-old looked set to play a big part entering the straight before his effort levelled out a bit but, with that outing under his belt, he could now reward support. High Desert scored in good style at Tramore on New Year’s Day and, while these fences will prove more of a test, he should go well off an initial chase mark of 116. Wilde Wit Pleasure ended a long losing run when landing a touch off a light-weight at Cork last time, while others to consider are Thurles novice winner Pineau De Re and the consistent Character Actor.
