Most of these would be better off with hurdles to jump including Benash, though his form on the Flat is equal to anything his rivals have produced. He hasn't been seen since November so could just need the run and DANCINGWITHANGELS is taken to get off the mark at last. She's now had a total of 25 runs without winning but has gone well recently and as long as the going doesn't firm up she can gain that elusive first success. Fire Belt started his career with five second places in his first six bumper starts and has a novice hurdle victory to his credit. He's having his first start since January so may lack sharpness and High Stratos could be a better alternative as he won a bumper in May, his second success in that sphere in four runs. Honkytonktennessee also has a bumper victory to his credit and Joseph O'Brien is an interesting booking while What Lies Ahead would come into the reckoning if the ground eases as her lone success came on heavy ground at Punchestown.
