Table Rock completed a double on ground with some give and didn't run badly in much faster conditions at Royal Ascot. He should be thereabouts and Wexford Opera has another attempt at this longer trip and isn't badly weighted. Bold Thady Quill landed the event in 2012 and though he hasn't won since last March he's been in fine form and was only just touched off in a similar race to this here last month. PIT STOP was receiving 1lb from Table Rock when beaten around 3l at Naas and has since done really well to score at Leopardstown. That was only his third start and with much more to offer he's taken to complete a double. Jayed Jiyan looked a very bright prospect last season and wouldn't have been suited by heavy going on his reappearance so he's definitely on the shortlist along with Breathe Easy, who dead-heated over 1m2f here last month after looking the likely winner at tonight's trip.
