FormscanBy Michael Graham - PRESENTING POINT has solid claims. He is entitled to respect after a third place in a higher grade over further at Clonmel on his penultimate start. He has switched stables and is returning off a break, but has won at this track before and drying ground is in his favour. Thecornerhouse has her chance. She left previous efforts in the rear-view mirror when finishing third in a big field at Gowran Park. The runner-up came out and won on her next start to bolster the form. Evan Dwan's claim is a help. He rode a winner for trainer Julie Cashin in November. Maggie Walsh made the breakthrough by a nose in Fairyhouse after a power-packed ride from Cian Quirke. She could build upon that with Brian Hayes in the plate. Rideau Canal has switched from Alan King in Britain to Denise Foster and made a promising start to life in Ireland with a third place in Fairyhouse.
