Tanjung Agas had a progressive profile when trained by Roger Varian but ran poorly on his hurdling debut for Edward O'Grady here in November and reverts to the Flat. Regal Tramp finally got off the mark at the 17th time of asking at Dundalk last month and didn't stay the 1m6f trip when strongly fancied at Leopardstown a few days later. El Toreros has shown promise on occasions but is still a maiden after 13 starts and Forest Minx has had one extra run without winning. Dusty Trail has won six times on the Flat and isn't badly treated on his reappearance but Apache Drums has been running poorly over timber. HANGAR FIVE has also been in action over hurdles and not doing badly and though he's another long-time maiden he had some really strong form last summer and looks well enough handicapped to finally lose his maiden status.
