If taking to fences first time Kamil and Bang Bang Rosie are likely to be involved, but perhaps the handicap experience acquired by BOSCO DI ALTO will prove crucial. Imperial Way may prove best of three Joseph O'Brien-trained hopefuls. [Alan Sweetman]

Promise when third in a point on debut; failed to build on that in three starts over hurdles prior to winning a Limerick maiden when main threat came down at the last; first-time cheekpieces and good ground possibly contributed to improvement

Winning pointer, placed in four of his five attempts over hurdles; has given an impression he could mature into a better horse over fences; however, he started with a reverse at Kilbeggan, pulled-up, with his rider reporting he had lost his action; that casts some doubt about his ability to handle the track.

Half-brother to top-class Djakadam; won Toulouse hurdle in April 2017 on good ground but jumping became an issue last autumn over both hurdles and fences; that still the case in the light of his exit at the ninth in a beginners' chase at Galway.
