RIVELLINO is in a different class to these according to official figures achieved when trained by Karl Burke in the UK. He won a Listed contest on the all-weather last February and though subsequently disappointing and well beaten on his first start for Ado McGuiness at Naas he should have the beating of these. Complicit hasn't won since 2014 and that was over 1m2f but stable companion Arlecchino's Rock won a handicap here in February and ran well on soft ground at Tipperary last week. Master Bond has an all-weather record of 1-17 and that victory was on Tapeta at Newcastle but Strategic Heights can never be discounted in this sort of company over the track and trip though he has a bit to find on official ratings.
