Kaki Island looks a likely sort on breeding and makes more appeal than fellow Irish raider It's All An Act, though the market will be best guide to the chances of both. Darcey Diva made a promising start when second to Centasia at Wincanton but we're taking BE BOP BORU to make it third-time-lucky after seconds at Chepstow and Huntingdon in arguably stronger company. Devil's Dyke has already won between the flags and started favourite here on his debut under Rules but gives the impression he'll need a stiffer test of stamina.
