Having failed to get off the mark in eight attempts over hurdles for Dermot Weld, smart bumper and Flat winner SILVER CONCORDE (NAP) duly bolted up on his debut for Keith Dalgleish over a longer trip here last month. He has the pace to cope with this drop is distance and is preferred to fellow Irish import Felix Mendelssohn. Pastoral Music has never won on Turf but did score twice on Polytrack at Kempton and is now with Donald McCain. Kelpies Myth has run his best races here and has place claims again.
