Stirabout hasn't shown much improvement on last year's form in a couple of outings so far this season. He should be thereabouts again but the less-exposed GORTEO is preferred. The latter found the odds-on Palace too good on her comeback at Navan month but looks to have an easier chance in this. Mansuri should be capable of better this term after a couple of starts on the Polytrack in 2013 while The Glimmerman and Alianca also look likely improvers. Ashtaroth is related to three winners and is a newcomer to note.
