Winning point-to-pointer and hurdler You Must Know Me looks a very smart staying prospect after several good runs last season though he'll be better over a longer trip, a remark that may also apply to Foxrock who stayed on gamely to land a maiden hurdle over 3m here in March and has scored between the flags. GOLANBROOK undoubtedly came up against a potential champion when beaten a long way by Defy Logic here last month and will be unfortunate to come up against one as good here so can go one better. Operating looks a real threat as he had jumped into the lead and was travelling easily when falling at Punchestown last week and he's always looked a decent chaser in the making, a remark that also applies to Road To Riches who was a Group 3 winner over hurdles before failing in championship events at Aintree and Punchestown.
