FormscanBy Gary Carson - Only four go to post but it's a cracking little race and FACILE VEGA can bag another Grade 1 win. The Walk In The Park gelding has had a lot to live up to with his pedigree and has done a sterling job with four top level successes already in the bag. The former Champion Bumper winner had a couple of reverses over timber last season but ended the season on a high and was good on his chase debut at Navan last month. He looked like he would improve from that experience as well. Found A Fifty ran relly well when second in Grade 1 company in the Drinmore last month and just looked to be outstayed late on then by I Am Maximus. He may be the one to give the selection most to do. Sharjah disappointed at Fairyhouse and needs to improve on that showing. My Mate Mozzie was turned over on his chase debut at Fairyhouse but was a smooth winner at Cheltenham last time and deserves a shot at this level.
