CLARCAM came in for strong support on his racecourse debut at Ballinrobe and though not quite able to cope with hot favourite Noble Inn he had the remainder a long way behind and should go one better. Cassells Rock arrives at Tony Martin's yard from France where he scored over 1m2f in August so he's a first-timer to keep an eye on as is Orgilgo Bay, who he has a Group 2 placed effort behind him on the level where he has a rating of 93. Dream Nolan and Sin Miedo haven't shown much to date over timber but are the type to do better.
