Gordon Elliott's team is up-and-running again. On the strength of the first of his two second placings LAST MINUTE MAN should have the measure of Giant Spirit, a four-time runner-up. Plan Of Attack and Amschel can be rated likely future maiden winners, and it may be premature to dismiss expensive purchase Madison To Monroe despite two bumper flops. [Alan Sweetman]

Convincing winner of a Down Royal bumper on debut early in 2017; did well to get within a head of the race-fit Antey (subsequent Punchestown festival winner) on first start long absence on hurdle debut at Cork; made a couple of mistakes, pulled a shoe and picked up a slight injury when a beaten odds-on favourite at Limerick; probably worth another chance.
