FormscanBy Tom Weekes - WHERE'S FRANKIE went missing last year but landed a gamble on New Year's Day and is nicely treated on handicap chase debut. Initially useful in point-to-points, he relished the staying trip when winning at Fairyhouse and today reverts to fences rated 9lbs lower than hurdles, over a suitable distance. School Lane won two points and two handicap chases this season and while his rating has climbed to 100, he was once rated 111 and has mileage left being a nine year old, with further wins likely. Ballyadam Destiny ran well at Punchestown and and should run well in his first handicap chase start while Shes Some Doll fell on her handicap chase debut over Christmas but had previously shown consistently useful beginners' chase form. It Could Be You competes on handicap chase debut from a maneagable rating under a 5lb claimer while Presenting Point was well held at Tramore latest but has claims on previous form.
