Bective has been very highly tried but hasn't been disgraced recently, though has only run over this trip once before and is having his first start here. Thomas O'malley came up against a smart sort in Psychedelic Funk on his debut at Naas in April but hasn't raced since and the second has done nothing for the form. JOHN HONEYMAN appeared to run out of steam on his debut at the Curragh but should last longer on this quicker surface and is open to plenty of improvement. Gino Severini has been racing over a mile so could benefit from a drop back in distance while Ambassadorial is a newcomer to note.
