Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - There's no doubt that THE CRAFTY BUTCHER would have you pulling out your hair were you following him to date but he looks an attractive each-way play here. Nought from twelve at this stage (including two point-to-points), the Vinnie Roe gelding has been a beaten odds-on favourite on the track twice, but on the flip side he has form behind some good horses including Our Vinnie, Mozoltov and Road To Riches. Now with a handicap hurdle effort under his belt – an okay performance behind Shariyan at Leopardstown – and back to a course where he's performed best, it'll be a case of back to the drawing board if he can't make a telling impact off 112 in this company. Dangers are almost too numerous to mention but as last time out winners, Sherika and Unoccupied have to top the list of others to consider.
