Was third over 7f here last autumn but refused to race on seasonal debut; however, no sign of that on last two starts when winning easily at Killarney and a solid second at Roscommon; off two months but capable of a big run.

Verdict

Having looked to be outstayed over further the last twice, BLACK HAWK EAGLE should be able to get off the mark dropped in trip and from a favourable draw. The McGuinness pair of Skontonovski and Star Of Cashel are lurking off dangerous weights, while Blackcastle Storm, Clear Quartz and Cleveleys are interesting from decent draws. [Tyrone Molloy]
