FormscanBy Donal Murphy - IRIDESCENT should be able to put his experience to good use. Two from three over fences, the Jonathan Fogarty-trained nine-year-old has a rating of 121. He finished second to Glenquin Castle at Galway earlier this month and this looks a good opportunity for him to register a fifth career success. Starting off over the larger obstacles, The Short Go is given second preference. The Fame And Glory bay finished no worse than third on his first five starts, but disappointed when a well-beaten sixth of eight on his latest outing at Ballybrit. Bella Bliss is the other leading hope and is two from two since switching to fences. She done well to strike on her chasing debut at Ballinrobe, before following-up when coming home alone in a two-runner contest at Kelso. Alex Harvey again takes the ride on the Getaway six-year-old, with the capable amateur claiming a valuable 7lb.
