Federici looked in need of a longer trip when staying on over 2m2f at Downpatrick, though a faster gallop would have been more to his liking. The Game Changer impressed with a comfortable debut victory in a bumper here in March and was in touch when brought down at Punchestown the following month. Katie T won a fast-ground bumper at Roscommon in the summer and has been in action on the Flat so she'll be fit enough. DANEKING was last in action at Doncaster a year ago where he won a 2m1f handicap for John Gosden. Connections went to 115,000gns to buy him and he looks to have been found a nice opportunity for a winning start over hurdles.
