FormscanBy Gary Carson - QUEEN JANE looks like a better chaser than hurdler and could be on a nice mark here after an impressive winning start over fences last time. The Mahler mare won with a fair bit in hand when taking a beginners chase at Clonmel last month and this is a nice little contest in which to take another step up the ladder. Battle Of Mirbat was another easy winner last time out and he could be a danger despite a 12lb hike for his victory at Leopardstown. The Ocovango gelding is still relatively unexposed. Misty Hollow also won last time out and his yard is in fine form. He only got a 5lb raise for his win in Navan but this looks a tougher race now.
