Formscan By Thomas Weekes - HURRICANE FLY makes his seasonal comeback here and, while his trainer has expressed some concerns over some of his horses being under a cloud, should prove up to this. He was disappointing at Cheltenham but bounced back with a win at the Punchestown Festival. His rating of 173 puts him well clear here but one time Champion Hurdle favourite Go Native bounced back to form with a win on the Flat at Galway latest. The manner of his win suggested he may well have the same ability of old and while his rating has dropped to 150, he was rated 164 at his prime. Unaccompanied gets her mares' allowance but is well held by the selection on a previous outing while Captain Cee Bee, a very admirable sort, takes a big step up in grade here.
