Formscan By Alan Magee - Davy Russell may have a few sleepless nights wondering if he has chosen the right one of the Gigginstown trio in what should prove an informative and highly competitive Grade 2 event. BONISLAND did look a useful recruit when making a successful hurdle debut at Down Royal earlier this month and will have no stamina worries on this testing track. Rule The World travelled like the best horse in the race when losing out narrowly in a three-way photo also involving Busty Brown at Cork (3m). This shorter trip should suit Mouse Morris’ charge, while Shrapnel has certainly turned a corner since joining Gordon Elliott this term and makes a quick reappearance after scoring at Fairyhouse on Wednesday. Seefood is an admirable gelding and has taken really well to jumping, while Wingtips has the right man on top to get the best out of a quirky sort.
