FormscanBy Gary Carson - BUGSCUFFLE was a good winner over slightly shorter here earlier in the month and this looks a good opportunity to secure a follow-up win. The September Storm gelding went up 7lb for that success, his third outing for Andrew McNamara, but still looks on a competitive mark in an ordinary event. Gold Haven looks a danger. She ran well in more competitive events at Navan early in the year and her trainer Paul Flynn has his team in fine form. Duffys Getaway didn't run too badly when fourth down in Cork last time and could be place material in this.
