Slade Steel

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Seems versatile ground-wise; has progressive RPRs and career record is 4-6; his only defeats came in races won by notable rival Ballyburn, keeping-on second in Leopardstown Grade 1 latest when dropped back to 2m; Grade 2 scorer over 2m4f at Navan the time before and may ideally need a return to that distance; he's in this race to avoid a clash with Ballyburn in the Gallagher but is a big player on form and any emphasis on stamina, through pace/ground, would be a plus.
