In depth


Huehuecoytle wasn't beaten far at Sedgefield last month but the winner did little for the form next time. Lake View Lad will need to settle a lot better than he did when a faller at Carlisle but there are possibilities about winning pointer on his debut under Rules Bigironship. MOUNT BECKHAM was placed at Down Royal and Leopardstown last season and would have needed his reappearance in what looked a decent maiden at Fairyhouse – a race like this should be within his capabilities.
