FIRST SITTING attracted good support on his debut over 7f here last month but found the trip and fast ground against him - he'll be much more at home here so gets the vote. Illusive is a full-brother to the brilliant Rip Van Winkle but so far has shown none of his relative's class and it's a surprise to see him racing over this trip after fading over a mile when last seen here in April. Lucent Dream made a fair debut at Bellewstown though that was over 1m4f and this is a big drop in trip. Rightway has started a short-priced favourite on both starts but looked one-paced at the business end. He's obviously well regarded and the longer trip and softer ground should help him do better.
