With Joseph O'Brien originally booked, connections of the useful hurdler Massini's Trap must have been expecting to get a run and, if he gets in from his reserve spot, he will take some beating. HURRICANE SKY was in winning form at this time a year ago and was made favourite on his reappearance over this track and trip but didn't find much at the finish. This is a poor contest and he's taken to recoup losses. Doux Douce has yet to win and never raced on ground with give but it's possible he could be suited and is by no means overburdened. Silver Chief hasn't been seen since runner-up over fences in December while Table Forty Six is poorly handicapped on Turf compared to her all-weather rating. Hangar Five has a Polytrack success to his credit but has run 25 times on Turf without winning.
