Voluptueux and NINGBO EXPRESS have had plenty of chances though both should be involved in the finish. The former has a penalty for last year's bumper victory and has been placed in all three starts over timber, the last two on good ground. Ningbo Express gets the age and fillies' allowance which should just swing things her way and she's also proven on tonight's likely fast going. Steel King looks a threat as he showed potential in bumpers last season and made a very encouraging start over hurdles behind the strongly fancied Hell Cat Maggie at Clonmel. Mizyen pulled much too hard when runner-up to Polished Rock at Gowran and would certainly enter calculations if Mark Enright can manage to restrain him.
