FormscanBy Donal Murphy - Back over two-miles and given a break since his last start, LITTLEFOOT should be able to win this weak affair. Second four-times from his first five track starts, the Mark Molloy-trained five-year-old disappointed when sent off favourite over two-and-a-half miles at Wexford in July. Beaten by a nose on his only previous effort on soft ground, he should have no issues with the likely testing conditions. Gordon Elliott saddles Wisteria Bloom and The Bay Horse. Jack Kennedy will be aboard the former, who hasn't been seen in over a year. Second in bumpers at Kilbeggan and Perth respectively, the Style Vendome bay starts off over flights now and it'll come as no surprise if he manages to deliver. The Bay Horse is a half-brother to four-time victor The Bosses Nephew and he won't have to be anything out of the ordinary to make an impact here on debut. Minella Diamond, Monsieur Azul and Toonagh Warrior are other leading contenders.
