Tony Mullins has acquired Erlkonig from Germany where he won twice including his last race on soft ground in October. He's an interesting recruit as is McKinley, a comfortable maiden winner at the Curragh in October. Feel The Air ran well enough behind Kylestyle at Thurles in January to be considered for a place while Super Sling is rarely beaten far though he's never raced anywhere but Dundalk. Irish Bulletin isn't without a chance but it's about time INDIAN ICON was winning over hurdles and his close sixth behind Ivan Grozny in a Fairyhouse Grade 3 last month suggests today will be his day.
