The Johnny Murtagh-trained import PROSECUTION can open his account with normal improvement from a Leopardstown run that gives him an edge over Hasselnott. Another import Maths Prize could pose a serious threat, and also worth noting is the selection's stablemate Harmonyofthestars, the least exposed runner in the field. [Alan Sweetman]

Both wins on a sound surface for Roger Charlton on 2016; not disgraced in Irish Lincoln on first run for this stable; entitled to respect this level, though may need better ground.

Placed four times, including on heavy ground over this trip at Nottingham, during his time with Hughie Morrison; has been gelded since making a good start for this stable with second in 20-runner contest at Leopardstown last month; looked a shade unlucky then and should uphold form with fourth-placed Hasselnott.
