A close-up fourth in a Group 3 sprint at the Curragh, Flight Risk steps up in trip but it should not be a problem for the Teofilo colt. He should be bang there at the finish but BROOCH (NAP) made an impressive debut at Galway three weeks ago. She stormed to a wide-margin victory despite being eased down in the latter stages and Dermot Weld's filly will be perfectly at home at this level. Colour Blue posted a better effort when third to Dalkova over 7f in Listed company last time with Dark Skies, Harpist and Sparrow all well beaten. Dandy Boy is a smart sprinter at his best but previous efforts at today's trip leave plenty to be desired.
