Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - On the mark here yesterday with Starkie, perhaps Henry de Bromhead can strike again at his local track with GOODOLDHONKYTONK. If you're prepared to forgive the blip of a disappointment when heavily-invested upon for a Cork bumper, then it's been a promising enough picture for the daughter of Oscar in two other outings. Indeed a repeat of an eighteen lengths fifth of eleven at Gowran last time, behind Umpact, could well be good enough in this company. She gets weight from the majority of her rivals and going up markedly in distance could help Goodoldhonkytonk too. Dubh Go Leir also goes up in trip and she'd be a most deserving winner at this stage. The well-bred Definite Article mare has shown very consistent form and she's bound to be right on the premises at the business end. As is the case with Dubh Go Leir, Goodoldhonkytonk has more scope for progression than the likes of Akatara and Bonheur Secret but they are contenders no doubt. The fascinating one is Milborough, coming off a break, and he can definitely get involved as well.
