Formscan By Donal Murphy - Despite pulling up last time out, RAVENSBURY is selected to make amends here. The Prunella Dobbs trained gelding was well backed when pulling up at Punchestown but he never settled during the race and found nothing towards the business end. That contest was over 2m 6f and dropped back in trip to two miles will suit him better. He won his bumper over two miles and has some strong bumper form to his name including finishing just a length and three parts second to Hidden Cyclone at Gowran in April of 2010. The Willie Mullins trained French import Touch The Eden (who holds an entry in the Grade 1 Navan Novice Hurdle) is sure to be popular among punters while hurdles may bring about an improvement in form in his other runner Raise Hell. The Henry De Bromhead trained Zane Grey is another who warrants respect on his hurdling debut.
