Bungle Inthejungle won a Group 3 at Ascot in October having finished second in the Flying Childers at Doncaster on his previous start. But he didn't appear to get home over 6f at the Curragh earlier and that has to be a worry on his reappearance. Irish raider Clancy Avenue, Limit Up and Shafaani have already won over the trip on the Polytrack this year and Zanetto was just touched off at Leicester but all need to improve again to get competitive here and this may also be too tough for Ceelo and Badr Al Badoor. Richard Hannon runs three and the once-raced Amberley Heights should be worth following this year but Richard Hughes rides VICTRIX LUDORUM and it's the Invincible Spirit filly who may prove the pick today. Highly progressive in the autumn before finding heavy ground too much in a Listed race at Newbury in October, she's worth another chance.
