EXPEDITION will be at short odds here and is impossible to oppose. Aidan O'Brien's colt made a winning debut on testing ground at Limerick and has performed with credit in much better company at the Curragh in two subsequent starts, both on quicker going. Fast In The Wind made a winning debut on ground with some give at the Curragh in April and didn't run badly when stepped up to Listed company on faster going there the following month. A long absence shouldn't be too much of a concern and he looks the main threat. Candy Apples has been consistent enough and her best form was shown on easy going at the beginning of the season.
