Centre Of Interest has run better than his finishing position indicates in his two opening runs and sets the standard amongst those with experience though Lord Of The Nile is expected to improve from his opening run at Killarney. Third Dimension has disappointed so far so it's the Ballydoyle newcomer RED ROCKS POINT, who is out of the high-class My Emma, that should make a winning debut. Cheeky Chappie is another first-timer with a strong middle-distance pedigree and he's a half-brother to six winners.
