Daliyan, only moderate on the Flat, looked as though he'll do better over hurdles after a fair debut behind Chicago on heavy ground at Limerick. Triumphant, whose last run on the Flat came when less than a length behind Camelot in a Group 3 at the Curragh in May, will have benefited from his run behind Vautou at Navan in December. KYLESTYLE's second to Western Boy at Leopardstown has been given a boost by the subsequent form of the winner and Fran Flood's charge can take this with a simlar effort as Roman General has now run nine times over hurdles without winning and may do better over further though his rider's claim is a bonus and he should get into the frame again.
