Karawaan went up 10lb for landing the Irish Lincoln in very good style and couldn't handle the extra. LANCASTER HOUSE was well supported for a Galway maiden and made most for a very convincing victory. He holds Group entries later in the season and should justify them here. Tankerville, an easy debut winner in October, hasn't run since a well beaten favourite in the Ballysax in April so needs to redeem his reputation but Memyselfandmoi didn't run badly when stepped up to Listed company at Galway after an easy maiden success here.
