FormscanBy Mark Nunan - A handicap in effect and you can be sure Eamonn and Alan Delany will have ESCAPING THEJUNGLE primed to try and register a second win at their local track. She slammed Polar Bear by over four lengths here last September before finding only one too good in an all-weather nursery. She ran a good race on rain-softened ground at Navan earlier last season so might handle conditions. Polar Bear went on to win a 6f Naas maiden on soft ground last back-end and has a 9lb pull with the selection from their running over course and distance. Sam's Xpress has rocketed up the ratings after two easy wins at Dundalk and the main question mark against him is his ability to translate that form to testing ground on turf. Lovejoy was well behind the selection at Dundalk last term but showed a liking for soft ground when winning on debut at Navan.%0A
