Millington returns to his winning trip of a mile after a couple of outings over 7f but doesn't look particularly well handicapped. Crecora ran a shocker at Galway having won over course and distance previous to that while Bay Hill was placed at Listowel before a having spin over hurdles earlier in the month. Iontas has cut little ice in handicaps so far so a speculative vote goes to LE PRIX DU SAINT, who may come good handicapping for the first time here having shown only modest form in maiden company.
