FormscanBy Gary Carson - Testing conditions are reportedly important to FROM THE ASHES and he may be able to follow up here despite a 10lb hike for his win at Gowran last time. The Ocovango gelding was a good winner then, when delivered with a well-timed run at the last and there looks scope for a bit more from the six-year-old. Bonnie Kellie has been knocking on the door and ran a big race at Navan last time. She looks like an obvious danger. Happy Dreams is another coming here in good form and has to be on the shortlist after a good run over further here a fortnight ago.
