Verdict

GIANT'S QUEST followed his easy victory in a Gowran maiden with a good second to Rawnaq in a tough handicap on this track before reverting to the Flat at Leopardstown and scoring again. He still looks well treated and can go in again though Benemeade will ensure he doesn't have it all his own way. He followed victories in maiden and novice company with a fine run in a much better race at Galway and looks a real threat. Another Ambition is lurking at the bottom of the handicap and is just 4lb higher than his vitory at Cork while Captain Arceus is at the other end of the weights and though absent since April he's a classy performer who had the selection 7l behind at level weights at Navan last September.
