Aussie Valentine attracted a bit of support on his debut at the Curragh and ran a nice race despite missing the break. That form is the best on offer and it will be a surprise if he's not concerned in the finish. But Jim Bolger has won two of the last four and can continue the sequence with the newcomer AMBER GRAIN, a daughter of Hurricane Run and the second foal of a mare who produced a winner over a mile with her first offspring. Kabjoy shaped quite nicely on her introduction at Tipperary though didn't make the expected progress at Killarney but Expensive Taste will have learned from his debut at Gowran and should do better.
