In depth

Verdict

Kevin Ryan has won this twice in the eight years it's been run so Al Rayyan, a Danehill Dancer colt out of an unraced mare from a smart family, should know what's required. Doc Charm is bred for speed and has plenty of winning relatives while Jungle Cat is a son of Ifraaj and a half-brother to numerous winners and Mark Johnston has won this three times. Poolstock should have plenty of pace as he's related to a couple of winning sprinters but it's THE WOW SIGNAL who is handed the vote. He's a son of the Aussie speedster Starspangledbanner and cost 50,000gns as a two-year-old and John Quinn has been amongst the winners recently.
