FormscanBy Eamonn Murphy - The 165-rated MINELLA INDO is a course and distance winner that will take a deal of beating here. Given that the general impression of the Beat Hollow gelding was, that he was the sort to come forward for every run as he built towards spring targets, his Wexford reappearance last month was most pleasing. He may have been an 8/13 shot, but his Bettyville thrashing of a fellow Cheltenham winner, Milan Native, saw the assessor bump him up five pounds to his current mark. Minella Indo is well entitled to be on any short-list for the Gold Cup in March and he should dispatch with these opponents without too much fuss. We haven’t seen Brahma Bull for over a year but perhaps he’ll chase home.
