Ralston Road's second to We'll Go Walking at Gowran was a fine run and the form could get a boost from the winner earlier in the day. MOURANI is bred for this sort of trip so he was never going to be a speedy juvenile. He's just the type John Oxx does so well with and can surprise a few better fancied rivals here. Plinth will attract support after making his debut behind stablemate Ruler Of The World at the Curragh and Ana O'Brien, who rode him on that occasion, makes way for her brother this time. Teoirim has plenty of experience but hasn't quite progressed as expected after a head defeat by Count Of Limonade in September but Tamaah is stoutly bred and should find this ideal on his debut so is one to keep an eye on.
