Drapers Guild has the best individual piece of form courtesy of his fourth in a Leopardstown maiden but his reappearance effort here wasn't up to that and it's not hard to go with EL GRECO, who ran a nice first race. The winner ran respectably in Saxon Warrior's maiden at the Curragh and the second has won since, so the form looks okay.[Alistair Jones]

Son of Galileo who was sent off at 7-2 for a 1m maiden here in October and just lacked the pace to trouble the front two, both of whom look decent; improvement on the cards, and especially now up in distance.

Easy to back at 16-1 when fifth of 12 and beaten 4l over 1m here three weeks ago; in-form trainer wasting no time in turning to blinkers and could easily leave that debut form behind.

Best run was his fourth to Ballysax runner-up Delano Roosevelt over 1m on good ground at Leopardstown in July and hasn't really gone on from there, taking record to 0-6 when a 2l second in C&D maiden on reappearance; leading form claims but vulnerable to something going forwards.
