Verdict

Several arrive with sound claims and it may pay to side with Gordon Elliott's FANCY FOUNDATIONS. Following a break, he shaped better than the distance beaten suggests when fourth in a Limerick Grade 3 in March and the drop back in trip/switch to handicaps are both positives. Ciel de Neige is building up an excellent record over larger obstacles and is a big danger, along with the returning Cavalry Master.
