Formscan By Thomas Weekes - BACK IN FOCUS was a long margin winner on his chase debut at Listowel and looks the type to progress over fences. He has been hit and miss in his career so far but chasing, and running over this trip, may prove the key to him. Pride Of The Arctic is chasing a five-timer and while he faces a tough task, cannot be dismissed. Farrells Fancy is another who looks made for chasing but steps up in grade while Sweeney Tunes was a little fortunate at Thurles last time. Lyreen Legend was a good hurdler and did little wrong at Glaway last time and has claims. Tofino Bay looks an enigmatic sort and should struggle here.
