Formscan By Alan Magee - TURBAN may prove yet another winner for the all-conquering Mullins yard. The French-bred has yet to add to a Thurles maiden hurdle victory on his Irish debut but has shaped well on a number of occasions to earn a lofty rating in the 140s. That places him on a different level to most of this field, and he should benefit from a hurdle run at Fairyhouse last month. A clear round of jumping should suffice here. Beeverstown is an interesting sort. The Dromahane point-to-point winner was in the process of running a good race behind Dedigout at Punchestown last month before falling two out, while Moiqen is another to note at fancy prices having looked set to get involved until blundering two out at Clonmel last time.
