Double Speak and Fill Your Hands filled the places behind Lucky Pat at Galway last time with less than a length between them. Both have obvious claims in this while Kalanisi King ran well for a long way on his racecourse debut at Leopardstown back in January and may have improved since. But another of Kalanisi's offspring, KNOCKANAR, makes his debut today and John Supple's charge rates a speculative selection given his dam is a sister to the high-class Kicking King and won a bumper on her only start.
