Formscan By Gary Carson - SACRE MALTA looks the obvious one here turning out quickly under a penalty. Willie Murphy revealed after his easy Limerick win that his horses have been very sick. Although having to suffer a lean spell it perhaps means that a few of his are well handicapped and the selection is hard to ignore carrying a 6lb penalty after running away with a similar contest four days ago. He should again hold Billybuster who chased him home then. Another interesting runner that could be well in is Thebarberkelly. He landed a big gamble on the all-weather at Dundalk last month and could be much better than he has shown over hurdles so far. The only negative is that the better surface was given as a reason for his improvement on the level so the testing conditions here are a worry. Pretty Happy rarely runs a bad race and although probably not the best handicapped horse she could have place prospects again here.
