GRECIAN TIGER, who made a winning debut between the flags, couldn't quite cope with the speed of Shield on his bumper debut at Leopardstown but will have benefited from the run and can go one better. Private Treasure came up against a decent winner on his debut at Leopardstown and is another who will have come on for the run He holds Taragato on that run though the latter may do better ridden with a little more restraint. Dawerann is held by the selection on their performance at Leopardstown while the market should be the best guide to the newcomers, though Eins Mann is related to winners and looks a nice type for Colin Bowe.
