Gerdago was just over 6l behind Clarcam at Punchestown and can go well with the experience under his belt. Guitar Pete beat Lindenhurst just over 2l on his debut at Listowel but failed to confirm the form under a penalty at Gowran. GITANE DU BERLAIS improved with each run at Auteuil, scoring there in May before a close third in a Listed contest a month later. He'll be at short odds here and could prove in a different league. The remainder have some improving to do if they are to get involved.
