FormscanBy Michael Graham - CAPTAIN JIMMY was an easy winner over an extended 3m in the basement grade at Punchestown and appeals. He was unplaced on his next outing, but that was in a much higher grade and, restored to this level, ought to be a player. Holiday In Kerry was caught on the run-in of a 3m handicap hurdle at Clonmel and finished third, but has winning form over 2m6f at this track. The more rain the better for him. Merry Moves has to rate a danger after grabbing her first victory here this month. She got a 7lb rise for that success, but the ground will be fine and she could go well again. Alpha Male is entitled to come on from his spin over the banks in Punchestown after being off for nearly nine months. Hanoi Jane and Church Lane aren't out of it.
