Sinour had shown potential at Naas in August and almost made all on his reappearance here last month. Orator showed plenty of promise in his starts last year and the son of Galileo will be much better suited by this trip. Fairy Foxglove didn't fare so well on soft ground at Naas after a decent opening run here but MAJENTA caught the eye in no uncertain terms on her debut over a mile here last month where she was repeatedly denied a run. With improvement likely, she looks the one to be on.
