Reginald Roberts has few runners but when he does they are invariably well supported and win more than their share. HEUSTON was well backed to make a winning start at Dundalk in December but was thwarted by Great Soprano, who is now rated 76, and he can make make a successful reappearance. Long Away has shown only moderate form but has been confined to testing ground so could find some improvement on this going but Live Dangerously is taking a big drop in trip and was staying on over a mile at the Curragh last time. Tafkeer is also tackling this trip for the first time but showed plenty of pace over 7f at Gowran and should be suited.
