FormscanBy Donal Murphy - GAMBE VELOCI appreciates a cut in the ground and will be suited by the likely testing conditions. Successful at Limerick in April, he ran his best race since when just over a length fourth to Signora Bellissima at Navan last month. The Caravaggio four-year-old was short of room behind the leaders from the two furlong pole at Proudstown Park and could be considered somewhat unlucky. A case can be made for each of the four course and distance winners in the line-up. Dragon Of Malta is one of them and the five-time victor is given second preference. Third in this race 12-months ago, he has been in fine form of late, winning at Galway and Listowel in recent weeks. Turbulence, Church Mountain and San Aer are the others with track winning form. The latter caught the eye when a never nearer third at Galway earlier this month and it'll come as no surprise if he manages to go a few places better now. Beaten by just a head in the Colm Quinn Mile at Galway and again placed at the Curragh last weekend, top-weight No More Porter is another leading hope.
