Verdict
Former Ballydoyle inmate SIR EREC ran a fine behind the mighty Stradivarius at Ascot on the Flat when last spotted. He's changed to Joseph O'Brien's yard now and, if taking to this game, should prove a tough nut to crack here. Willie Mullins won this last year and sends out French import Tiger Tap Tap today, she's likely to know her job. Bachelor, Fightfortheroses and Andalusa can be in the mix for minors.
  1. Sir Erec
  2. Tiger Tap Tap
  3. Fightfortheroses
