Timeform on King's Song

Paris Texas - 14:45 Downpatrick

Paris Texas arrives with the best form, very much setting the standard on his runner-up effort at Cork last time, and is taken to strike at the seventh time of asking over timber. Melly And Me and Silver Star are good enough to ensure the selection won't have things all his own way, while it would also be no surprise to see the Willie Mullins-trained Jonnicraig leave his hurdle debut form behind.

King's Song - 15:55 Downpatrick

King's Song landed some nice bets when bolting up at Perth recently, leaving his previous efforts over hurdles well behind, and he looks capable of defying a rise in the weights for his top stable. Sonowyouno could be on a good opening mark based on his run behind a couple of promising types last time and heads the dangers along with the progressive The Jam Man.

Present In Court - 16:30 Downpatrick

Present In Court made a pleasing debut over hurdles behind a useful Willie Mullins' prospect here recently and will take all the beating if improving. That yard run another interesting one in Little Nugget, who won a Wexford bumper when last seen. Wigs on The Green may have won had he stood up at Limerick last month, but this looks a tougher maiden.
