Admiral Hawke, runner-up to Aladdins Cave at Galway last month, ran poorly there a few days later but must have been feeling the effects. It's about time he was winning but may have to give best here to ANSIEI, who arrived with winning form on the Flat in Listed company in Italy and made a very encouraging debut for new connections at Limerick last month where he looked the winner until tiring in the latter stages. Prince Chaparral has had 10 starts over hurdles without winning but gained his fourth success on the Flat here on Thursday and looks a danger to all. Bunty Lawless showed her first sign of form over hurdles at Wexford last month and could make the frame.
