King Malik, who won a Fairyhouse bumper in October, improved on his hurdling debut when close up at Limerick last time and can do better. Supreme Bob showed some promise on his bumper debut in February and is the type to make a hurdler and Firebird Flyer ran well enough in a bumper at Fairyhouse to suggest he has a future. Plato had some fair form on the Flat for Sir Henry Cecil and is one to note as he makes his hurdling debut, but it's impossible to get away from TRIFOLIUM as the most likely victor as this dual winner in France has shown enough in two starts over hurdles for new connections to take this without too much fuss.
