Looked to have been found a nice opportunity at Down Royal last time but beaten a long way and was disappointing; dropped 2lb for that and would be interesting if back to the sort of form which saw her finish fourth to Felix Desjy at Punchestown; don't dismiss.

Couldn't win for a leading Flat stable; beat his 21 rivals in a heavy-ground maiden hurdle at Cork but has found no further improvement and there's no obvious reason why he should be reversing latest Naas placings with Brazil, even with a pull in the weights; cheekpieces join the regular tongue-tie.
