Formscan By Gary Carson - ITSUPTOYOU ran a cracker at Punchestown on New Year's Eve and a repeat can see him land this. He was just headed in the closing stages then by Luke's Benefit and has just a pound higher mark now. The runner-up failed to frank the form when fading tamely here earlier this month but it was probably a big ask to turn him out again so quickly. It wasn't the hottest heat that Popaflora won at Punchestown a week ago but he's only up 5lb for that and could prove a danger. The drop back in trip is a bit of a concern, however, for an ex point-to-pointer. Reality Dose has been consistent without getting his head in front and looks to have place prospects again while this ground would probably be too testing for Lucky Spring.
