RED ROCKS POINT is developing into a smart performer as entries in Group races suggest. He may have found 1m3f stretching him last time but still landed the odds and today's distance is probably his optimum. Nonchalant looks the main threat with a visor applied for the first time though he's looked as though a slightly longer trip would suit in his last couple of races. Move To Strike is an intriguing entry as he hasn't been seen since flopping in a 2000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown in April of last year. He may just need this but the betting should tell us more and he's one to watch whatever happens. Ebasani, a winner at Navan on his only juvenile start, was well beaten in a Group 3 at Navan when reappearing in April and hasn't been seen since.
