COULTHARD came up against some smart performers in his three runs on testing ground and ran very well in them all. He may not have been suited by Polytrack at Dundalk but still ran well and should lose his maiden tag. Yulong De Legend showed very good speed in a track and trip race that has worked out well and looks the main threat unless one of the newcomer is smart. Hongkong Harmony looks very well bought at €65,000 and could be the best of them as he's by Kingman out of a 6f Group 3 winner from an outstanding family. Power Under Me is out of a 7f winner though wasn't an expensive purchase.
