In depth

Verdict

The lack of a recent run on the Flat shouldn't be a problem for Kalann as he's been in excellent form over timber this year scoring at Cork in April. Reggae Rock rarely runs on anything other than very soft ground so he'll need some rain but Gypsie Queen ran her best race on very fast going at Navan last month when runner-up to Cry For The Moon. Teajaybe stepped up to this trip for the first time at the Curragh and produced his best effort to date behind Sportmaster. He can go well but fellow three-year-old ALAYIR made all for a very convincing victory at Tramore and doesn't look overburdened for his handicap debut.
