Aidan O'Brien must be despairing of getting a race out of Eagle Canyon but he hasn't been running badly and should be challenging again. FRED FENSTER showed promise on both starts last season and made an eye-catching reappearance at Dundalk. He will have come on for that and gets the nod though the market could be a good guide to this. Ring Them Bells is an interesting newcomer as he's a half-brother to a couple of Group winning sprinters while Obviously showed some promise at Gowran despite badly missing the break.
