DEVILS PAINTBRUSH started favourite on his debut at KIlbeggan and recorded a smooth victory. This is much tougher but there's plenty more to come and he can follow up. Nathans Pride was also very well supported on his opening run at Thurles and he was always travelling nicely to gain a comfortable success. He's a big threat as is Well Read Man, who scored despite encountering problems in-running at Punchestown. Mister Nibbles has a double penalty and will do very well to land this and the others with experience will need to improve but Robyn's Rose is one to keep an eye on in the market on her debut.
