Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Not with any huge degree of conviction, WAR CORRESPONDENT, second over the course and distance 11 days ago, gets the vote. A half-brother to War Of Attrition, this Westerner six-year-old came up against a decent horse last time in Captain Canada and a repeat of that effort could well be good enough. Eugene O'Sullivan's Rocknrollrambo has been showing decent form in point-to-points lately and he could easily make his presence felt in this sort of company. Milan Nua, now first-time over hurdles, has shown enough over the larger obstacles to suggest that he could get involved now. It'll be interesting to see if there's any confidence in the market behind Mimi And Bow as she reappears from a lengthy absence. Sasa Semo is a potential 'dark one,' so keep an eye on him in the betting as well.
