FormscanBy Gary Carson - RHYTHM KING has winning form in testing conditions and may prove the pick here on his return to action. The Elzaam gelding was beaten favourite for the Birdcatcher on his final start last season, finishing mid-division having been well supported. He had been second to recent winner Duke Of Leggagh prior to that in Galway having won in Gowran the time before. All those runs came with plenty of cut and that looks a big plus. Master Garvey ran well to finish third in heavy ground at Naas last weekend and he has to be on the shortlist here. The Dragon Pulse gelding remains on the same mark. Knockmore Prince has been knocking on the door on the all-weather but faces much different ground conditions now.
