Draco ran a couple of decent races for Aidan O'Brien before a poor run at Punchestown in April but the filly TIRAULI may have the advantage here with her allowance. She looked a certain future winner when beaten narrowly here last month and though slightly disappointing next time at Roscommon it was a strange race where an outsider went a very long way clear and some of the remainder appeared to be caught out. Spa Hill isn't doing much wrong and has been coming up against useful opposition while Derek O'Connor's mount Steel King made an encouraging debut at Roscommon and will have come on for the experience.
