Probably the toughest race of the evening for punters but Jamie Codd's presence on board MANUKA may swing things the way of Tommy Carmody's colt. The son of Galileo showed promise in maidens before a very unlucky run behind tonight's rival Atmospheric High here last month and is one of the few here with potential to do better. Willie Mullins runs the veteran Deutschland and Moveable Asset with preference just for the former while Nina Carberry should ensure Cottesloe, who made a winning handicap debut over the C&D a month ago, gets involved. He'llberemembered has been in winning form over fences and makes his debut on an all-weather surface but Regal Warrior has a C&D victory to his credit and has to be respected.
