Indian Icon has been lightly raced on the Flat and shown useful form so has to be of interest on his hurdling debut. CLARCAM wasn't beaten far on his opening run at Ballinrobe nor when runner-up to Orgilgo Bay at Punchestown. He had Sin Miedo over 6l back in third in that latest run and will be unfortunate to come up against one as promising as the winner this time. Moss Street, a stable companion of the selection, can do best of the remainder.
