Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott looks to have found an ideal opportunity for the Gigginstown House Stud-owned ECLAIR DE BEAUFEU to open his account in the opener here. The four-year-old can build on his four solid starts since last month and see off the attentions of Envious Editor from the Jessica Harrington yard and the Charles Byrnes newcomer, Poseidon.
