Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Bostons Angel is a classy recruit to this discipline but coming here on the back of a fall is hardly ideal. Of course he could be good if this game re-kindles the spark, but he's hardly a punting proposition at this juncture. Fresh from his big Cheltenham win on Uncle Junior yesterday, Patrick Mullins will no doubt be hopeful of another success and his father Willie said of Sharkervilz recently: "Has mixed it well over hurdles and fences and did the job nicely at Listowel. I have him earmarked for cross-country races and we'll concentrate on them from now on." You can be sure a big run is in the offing. He's anything but a prolific winner but ARABELLA BOY is fairly consistent and he has experience in this sphere. Of course he has the connections you want on your side for this game too.
