MINELLA FOR PARTY displayed a willing attitude to win on Punchestown's point-to-point course in February. He looks a nice prospect and can make a winning start under Rules here, though Free Advice has also shown promise between the flags. Tom Taaffe's Georges Street wasn't disgraced in decent bumpers in Ireland last winter and has to be of interest, while The Romford Pele was well backed when runner-up to Salubrious on his debut at Stratford last month and should improve for the experience.
