J: Mr B O’Neill

T: D M Christie

Last season he had convincing verdicts over Billaway and Its On The Line, and yet his shrewd Northern Irish trainer elected to bypass this despite being long prominent in the ante-post market; only a 7yo and very much an emerging force, but he did get outstayed by Its On The Line at Down Royal over Christmas (3m, soft; first-time tongue-tie, retained since) and that's a worry with a view to this even stiffer stamina test (more patient tactics than usual may need adopting); has since won easily at Thurles but was entitled to; appeals as the likeliest winner if seeing out the trip.
