Third runner for yard; narrow winner of a Lingstown point (soft) in November for Sean Doyle and makes debut for a top yard today; should be capable of making his presence felt and market strength would be a plus.

Narrow winner of a Lingstown point last November for Sean Doyle; ran away with a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown early this month, beating a stablemate by 27l in a race in which the Willie Mullins-trained odds-on favourite had a veterinary excuse for his failure; could be progressive.

Well beaten in a C&D maiden hurdle on debut but a better effort since at Naas; will need to improve further to take this but seemingly the yard's first-string on riding arrangements.

Smart Flat sort for Roger Varian, winning four races up to 1m6f but stays 2m; 3rd in a Group 3 on final start for that yard; sold for 78,000gns in the autumn and worth watching in the market on debut for new connections.

Ascot runs only when mid-division at the Royal meeting over 2m4f (2021) and 1m6f (2023); while most of his career has been spent over further than this, he was back to 1m4f with a bang when winning well in a handicap at Hamilton (good to soft) six weeks ago in first-time cheekpieces, making it 2-2 at that track and showing career-best form; each-way contender on that.

Form & Verdict

Won a Rathcannon point on second start for Colin Bowe last year and made 110,000euros at the sales soon after; a bit off-putting that he has a hood and tongue-tie on for rules debut but represents a top yard so respected.

Point and bumper winner; highly tried in winner's company since, twice coming up against A Dream To Share and also ran well in a Grade 2 contest at Aintree last year; looks a candidate to be a useful hurdler but rider bookings suggest that more is expected of his stable companions today.
