BLAIR PERRONE was well backed on his debut at Punchestown at the start of the month and wasn't disgraced. Tony Martin's charge wears a hood here to help him concentrate and can recoup losses at the main expense of fellow Irish raiders Quiet Account, who has been placed in a couple of point-to-points, and Okotoks. The latter is out of a King's Theatre mare while Bennylicious is another newcomer with a decent NH pedigree.
