The son of distinguished parents, being by Galileo and out of Annie Power; has duly made a big splash and finished clear second in the Supreme at Cheltenham (2m, soft; hood applied) most recently, worn down by the rallying winner towards the finish having briefly looked likely to maintain an unbeaten record; headgear retained; leading claims.

The son of highly distinguished parents, being by legendary Flat sire Galileo and the first foal of Champion Hurdle winner Annie Power; has duly made a big splash and took his record to 3-3 with Grade 2 romp at Punchestown (2m, soft) most recently; bumper win came on good ground; not completely fluent in his two races over hurdles but scored impressively by 7l both times and looks a Grade 1 winner in waiting; should benefit from first-time hood, having shown a tendency to take a good hold; brings stacks of potential to this bigger stage and commands major respect.

Has run in just one French bumper and four Irish hurdle races; impressive in a maiden at Navan (heavy) and, although put firmly in his place, he's run with credit since behind Tuesday's Mullins-trained Supreme runners Mystical Power and Tullyhill; all those were at about 2m and stepping up in trip may well suit; makes his handicap debut too and looks the first string on jockey bookings for his powerful stable.

Ran in one hurdle race in France and three in Ireland, easy winner of a Thurles maiden (2m, yielding); beaten about 25l at Punchestown in a Grade 2 (soft) and Listed event (heavy) but that leaves him extremely unexposed and this is a marked step up in trip for handicap debut.
