Formscan By Gary Carson - A chance is taken with TEXAS TEA who has joined Colm Murphy's yard since his debut run. He was punted at Limerick back in March and shaped nicely behind Kauto Star's half-brother Kauto Grand Mogul in what looked a decent contest. He looked like he would improve for that effort then and with a bit of time under his belt could make into a nice sort now. Blackmail was well fancied for his debut at Navan and ran well to finish second to Champagne James. The winner did the form no harm when finishing runner-up in a Grade 2 contest subsequently. Willie Mullins always has to be respected in bumpers and Rough Justice has to come into calculations. The point-to-point winner was easy enough to back on his debut at Punchestown when finishing third. He's entitled to come on for the run and could be a big contender now. Its hard to weigh up the form of the race in which Saffron Wells was second in at Fairyhouse as the Mullins winner didn't seem to be particularly well fancied while Bose Ikard flopped when sent off an odds-on shot for his debut at Clonmel and would need to improve from that.
