Be Bop Boru stayed on under pressure to finish second to Regal Encore on debut at Chepstow. That experience won't have been lost on him but he may need further and newcomer KING BORU, another son of Brian Boru, looks to have greater scope. Emma Lavelle may have found a good opportunity for her four-year-old, a half-brother to useful hurdler and chaser Last Instalment, to make a winning debut. Royalracket has a decent NH pedigree and hails from a yard that can ready a newcomer. He makes more appeal than the exposed Icanseeclearlynow, though that one was quite highly tried last time.
