Showed a bit more when beaten 12l at Punchestown when last seen in first-time blinkers (retained); needs to build on that now and didn't really shape like he wanted this longer trip but his pedigree suggests it may suit.

Said to like good ground on which he won at Down Royal in the summer; Sligo fourth on soft was respectable and was in front when falling three out at Down Royal; poor run across the water last time; change of headgear.

Was quite exposed in Ireland but she was off the mark on second start for this yard, at Bangor in August (2m7f, good); has not fared as well in two runs on good to soft since, though, and nothing in her rules record as yet to suggest this slower ground will suit.

Losing run goes back to a Musselburgh bumper success in 2020; however, performed with credit in two races at Ayr at the start of the year and it was an encouraging return from a four-month break at Punchestown last week when fourth of 16; has struggled over this sort of trip previously though.
