Formscan By Gary Carson - Shrapnel is an improver but looks to have plenty on his plate here carrying top weight in a competitive looking heat. CALL ROG could be counted an unlucky loser at Gowran Park last time as he stumbled when holding every chance on the run-in. The winner Treat Yourself ran well in a competitive event at Leopardstown recently so the form looks solid while the extra half mile here should suit as he stayed the trip well when winning his maiden hurdle at Wexford. Tony Martin's horses in handicaps always command respect and Miriam's Dream with Paul Carberry booked is of obvious interest. He stuck at it well to claim his maiden hurdle at Roscommon in October when he looked like he would appreciate a step up in trip. Canaly comes here having won a novice chase at Fairyhouse a couple of weeks ago but there may be a couple better handicapped over hurdles while Away We Go represents the top men but has to bounce back after a disappointing run at Navan.
