DIBDABS finished last on his debut for Maurice Barnes at Ayr in January but joined Willie Mullins and scored comfortably when well supported at Tramore. There's more to come and he should complete the double before going on to better things. Stolberg made a winning debut at Listowel in September but couldn't handle his penalty in a better race at Naas later. Tooreen has done well between the flags and Robert Tyner does well with similar types but Positive Approach looks as though he needs further.
