FormscanBy Alan Magee - TORYGRAPH looks the safest option. The Gordon Elliott-trained gelding appreciated the step up to this trip at Fairyhouse last time when staying on strongly in the straight to beat Velvet Elvis by a wide margin and that form has been boosted since. Fighter Allen is a half-brother to the unbeaten Envoi Allen and showed that he retains plenty of ability when taking a Punchestown maiden over an extended 2m5f in November. However, he now needs to bounce back after going amiss the following month when pulled up in a Grade 2 at Navan. Point-to-point winner Heather Rocco is an interesting sort having made a smooth transition to the track at the Limerick Christmas meeting. Angels Dawn has yet to win in seven bumper starts and has it all to do on her hurdle debut.
