Front-running tactics worked a treat when showing a gutsy display to shed maiden tag at Cork 22 days ago; dam was a 1m4f winner in France but the handicapper hasn't missed him with mark of 87; though.

Verdict

A fascinating race given the small field. GHASHAM may have a bit more to offer. Laelaps is greatly feared and Longbourn encounters waters much calmer. The dark one is Takeachancejimmy. [Johnny Ward]
