Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Determination from horse and rider carried the day at Punchestown last time for LAST TIME D'ALBAIN and Ruby Walsh, and the pair are taken to supplement that success. Of course we've all been banging on for a while now about how well-handicapped Liam Cusack's good servant is over flights, relative to his chase rating. However there are a different set of ratings for a reason, as has been displayed on countless occasions in the past. Last Time D'Albain began his racing in the point-to-point fields and as such the extra distance he encounters now, at a track like Navan, surely won't do him any harm. Cool Oscar landed a punt at Thurles 17 days back and the 9Ib rise he's been handed in the ratings seems fair, given the style of that victory. He looks a big danger to all. Whiskey And Red is a good hardy type and he looks sure to be on the premises again. Jimmy Lambe often comes up with a Navan winner and his booking of Barry Geraghty for Forestside, returning off a break, looks significant. Keep a close eye on the betting with regard to this one.
