CRAFTSMAN will be a warm order after his debut at Gowran where he beat all bar Warbird with the remainder, including Mawred. well beaten off. Aidan O'Brien's colt should have few problems going one better. Upper Silesian has run two decent races in fair company at Leopardstown and looks the type to be suited by today's conditions which may also suit Bismark, who ran very well on his debut at Navan but had no answer to the classy Sudirman at Leopardstown. Kilruane Shea made a bright start behind Hilltown Gal at Down Royal then found fast ground against him at Navan so should do better.
