Formscan By Alan Magee - A fascinating race to get the four-day Christmas meeting underway with a number of contenders here that possess bags of potential. Umpact is certainly in that category following an impressive Irish debut when heavily-backed in a Gowran Park maiden hurdle earlier this month. Winner of a French bumper before joining present connections, he also receives 4lb from the other main contenders. However BALLYNACREE did little wrong in three outings last spring, has the scope to progress and, like Umpact, should make a fine chaser in time. He showed a fine attitude when taking a Grade 3 novice at the Fairyhouse Easter meeting and, coming off an eight month break, market support would be highly significant. Loch Ard coped really well with desperate conditions at the Punchestown Festival, while this ground may just find out Pageboy.
