Timiyan has only raced on soft ground and shown ability so he's definitely one to note on his handicap debut. Intense Debate is still a maiden and stepping up markedly in trip though he's dropped to a mark which Jim Bolger will be exploiting before long. Annus Mirabilis got off the mark at the fourth time of asking at Leopardstown last week and arrives here with a penalty. This is tougher but he's respected though it's PRIMOGENITURE, who stepped up to this trip for an impressive victory at Fairyhouse with Resiliency behind, who looks the one to be on. Kabjoy didn't appreciate fast ground at the Curragh and tonight's conditions will be more to his liking.
