REBEL FORCE made a bright start at the Curragh last September and was probably in need of the run behind Wannabe Better at Naas last month. She has more scope than most of these and can take this before going on to better things. Alkali found good ground to her liking at Killarney though will need to improve again but Tonabrocky hasn't done much wrong and may find this longer trip to his liking. Bint Nayef has had plenty of chances but Roman Romance may be capable of better as she found 1m1f way below her optimum trip at Gowran after a reasonable opening effort here.
