Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - No prizes for originality but BRIAR HILL is surely the one to side with here. Out of an unraced sister to Boston Bob, this fellow got the job done is a very professional manner with Derek O'Connor up, in a Necarne youngster's maiden point-to-point back in May. Wilson Dennison and Colin McKeever had Briar Hill then and when you consider the style of his full-brother, Futuramic's success at Limerick over the Christmas, you realise this family have no problem coping with tough underfoot conditions. The well-bred Boondooma looked a horse of some potential when winning 'between the flags' at Lemonfield but he has to leave his bumper debut effort at Fairyhouse firmly in the past. In The Gate has to be respected given his connections but he too will likely have to display a lot more to upstage Briar Hill. The other pair have it to do on paper.
