Wexford Opera would have no problems winning this on the balance of his form but he's now had a dozen starts and ran one of his worst races to date at the Curragh last time. Danseur De Feu was caught in the dying strides by Ramone over 6f at Leopardstown but this longer trip should be in her favour and she has to be a threat. TABAARY made his debut at the Curragh in June and attracted some support. He took a while to get going but was keeping on nicely at the finish and this extra furlong can enable him to gain beat more exposed rivals. English Deer has some strong form to his credit though faces fast ground for the first time.
