THE INFORMER (NAP) stepped up to this trip for the first time at Downpatrick and was well supported but found Mr Mulliner just too strong. That was only his second run since October so further progress is expected and he looks the one to be on. Colms Dream has won twice at 2m4f but has yet to prove he stays this far and though Itsonthelist has run well here in the past he's still a maiden after 18 starts. The Fitz Lady is another long standing maiden and Boherna Lady has lost her form, though she's slipped to a very lowly mark as a consequence. Ash Rowe has won three point-to-points but has never been placed under Rules.
