FormscanBy Mark Nunan - John Ryan is certainly not letting THE LITTLE YANK rest on his laurels but the eight-year-old takes his racing well and might get a turn here. After a couple of creditable spins over hurdles at Listowel, the Westerner gelding ran close to his mark in a conditions chase at Sligo last week and earlier in the summer had Pats Choice back in fourth when runner-up in a valuable handicap at Killarney. Pats Choice had previously been a fortunate winner at Wexford when left in front by a last-fence faller who was clear but his course and distance third at the festival in August was a decent effort. Take All had been off eleven weeks before running out of steam at Listowel and this drop in trip will suit but 2m2f looks too sharp for Grand National sixth Born By The Sea.%A0
