Verdict

TELECON travelled with purpose when third at Clonmel first time out and, with improvement on the cards, he's taken to get off the mark under Derek O'Connor. Silver Breeze ran with credit in a strong race at Navan 6 months ago and is respected, while Realistic Optimism, who scored readily at Kilbeggan on Monday, would boast obvious claims if he participates.
