Some mainly disappointing types here but it's about time TOTAL REALITY was losing his maiden tag and he won't get many better opportunities. Denis Cullen's charge has run some really good races in defeat and his close second to Fearless Falcon at Thurles in October would be good enough and he just holds Peccatorum on that run. Super Sonic Boom didn't show much on his hurdling debut behind Gamede at Naas but is likely to do much better with that under his belt while Native Palm made an encouraging start over timber when narrowly beaten on fast ground at Cork in October.
