BOGARDUS is by Dalakhani so was always likely to do better in his second season over middle-distances. He showed enough potential in his first campaign to be handed the vote. Fuinnimh came here for a 7f maiden in January and caught the eye when travelling well until running out of steam. She'll be better for the experience and rates a threat. Eddie Lynam's Mr Snagsby is closely related to a decent all-weather winner so should be noted in the betting along with the 58,000 euros purchase Wolf In The Desert, who looks the best of Paul Deegan's pair.
