The 100-rated WOULD BE KING, a dual Listed runner-up and Group 3 second, jumps off the page here and his astute handler appears to have found him an ideal opportunity to open his account. Indianapolis looks the main danger whilst the newcomer Cloak Of Darkness is also considered. [Shay Howard]

Outsider of the field and of his stable's three runners when last of five on his debut here over an extended 1m2f on debut; showed a fair bit of inexperience that day and with the third home a winner on next start, no surprise if this brother to four winners goes close.

Pat Smullen booked for debut at Naas last year but was weak in the market and failed to show a great deal, trailing in ninth of 10; has changed stables and needs to have made giant strides.

Not a bad effort on debut over C&D in November but no improvement on second start at Listowel; that on the back of a 205-day break and probably needed it, but others look stronger.

Showed enough to catch the eye at Bellewstown (1m) albeit a moderate fourth of eight runners behind Scream; this looks tough but of interest once handicapping.
