Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - It would have to be with reluctance that anyone would put forward a horse such as VICSAFLIA, but at an each-way price he could go well in a winnable heat. Firstly, he's related to some good horses when one considers he's a half-brother to the likes of China Rock and Barrakilla. Cheek-pieces replace the blinkers that he wore at Downpatrick last time, and his third in a point-to-point at Loughrea back in October, would give him a chance of at least making the frame in a weak-looking contest such as this. It'll be interesting to see how Luddenmore goes in the betting, coming off a lengthy absence, and if he's fit and fancied he has every chance on the form he's shown to date. Kashline is another big contender and he seems certain to go close. As a winner, Tidy Zag is entitled to the utmost of respect against this class of opposition whilst with a rating of 91, Castlerock Rose has to come right into it. As a half-sister to the likes of Golden Kite, Indelible Run is worth keeping an eye on in the market.
