Iamtoldiamgrand will attract support simply because of connections though she didn't run badly at Listowel and will be better served by the longer trip. Smiler wasn't beaten far over hurdles by Curley Bill in August but was beaten out of sight at Listowel last time where the soft ground may have contributed to the poor run. JAZZ CONCERTO was well supported on his debut at Gowran a fortnight ago but pulled too hard and never looked likely to win. He's fitted with a hood this time so hopefully that will prove enough for him to get off the mark.
