In depth


Guttural, pulled up on his only start between the flags, ran well enough in a Tramore bumper in May to suggest he can do much better. POKER D'AINAY was in a clear lead at this trip before being passed and beaten 12l when tackling an extended 2m5f at Downpatrick so dropping in trip can see him off the mark. Stylish Moment had his last two starts in the UK for Alan King over fences and will probably find this too sharp but Inishbel has to be a major threat as she was staying on strongly over 2m at Punchestown last month, her first start since October.
