Formscan - The Lucinda Russell stable can do little wrong at present and GIOVINCO must hold every chance after bolting up at Ayr on his Rules debut. A 7lb penalty for that success may not be enough to stop him, and he can get the better of Largy Shark, who got off the mark in fine style last November. A winner of three of his last four in point-to-points, Busty Boy cannot be ruled out either.
