Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Twice a winner on the level cross-channel with Amanda Perrett, WELSH NAYBER could be poised to deliver at the third time of asking over flights. There wouldn't appear to be a huge degree of strength in depth to this event and a reproduction of either effort thus far over hurdles, from Welsh Nayber, might well suffice. Of course the fly in the ointment is Some Article. If he's strong in the market then J P McManus' runner (the top owner fields three here) would be greatly respected. Liam Burke's Harelkin would certainly be interesting if the betting is positive. It isn't that easy to put forward a solid case for anything else.
