Verdict

Jockeyship will play just as big a part in this as form and Michael O'Connell has already enjoyed plenty of success riding for Dandy Nicholls. The pair team up again here with Noimead Draiochta, who has his first run for the yard but had form in better company in Ireland for Jim Bolger. He has a penalty to carry today, however, so STAMP DUTY is just preferred. James Sullivan's mount drops into this grade for the first time and is the one to beat on his fifth over this trip at Leicester in July. Bay Of Fires could figure if a visor has the desired effect while Eeny Mac and Meandmyshadow are usually thereabouts and can't be ignored.
