Needless To Say the advice here is to watch the market. Ange D'Or Javilex, the only one with experience, wasn't beaten far at Down Royal and will have come on though that didn't look the strongest of bumpers. Paul Nolan's Kennady and Michael Bowe's Aunt Alice are both by Kalanisi and the latter is out of a mare who won over 1m6f on the Flat. She could be useful though the pedigree of DR WALUIGI suggests he could be up to winning this. He cost 33,000 euros and is out of a mare who scored on the Flat and hails from a top family.
