ANDANTINO is a half-brother to French 2000 Guineas winner Astronomer Royal and should be better over today's trip despite staying on over 1m3f at Dundalk on his return to action. Knockenduff was having her first start for Ger Lyons when a good third in a maiden at Dundalk and there's probably more to come while Big Bad Billy Bob showed the benefit of his comeback run with a fine effort at Limerick on Tuesday. Enjoy Your Life didn't perform badly behind subsequent winner Bashir Biyoum Zain on his return and can make further progress.
