A strong turnout for the money with many of the entries arriving in top form but it's SECURITY BREACH who gets the vote on his handicap debut. Willie Mullins' youngster, a winner on fast ground on the Flat, handled heavy ground well when landing his maiden at Wexford and could have got in here lightly. Gates Of Rome is in cracking shape but probably needs more testing conditions so Gold Bullet looks more of a threat as he was an impressive winner of a Limerick maiden. Lughnasa could hardly have won a maiden here more easily and is another who looks well treated while St Maxime battled to victory at Galway in September and a long absence is rarely a problem for one from this yard.
