Nothing really stands out here so the newcomers Mr Raj and Feenakilmeedy should be noted in the market. Onwiththeparty didn't perform badly over the course and distance in May when the ground was very testing while Giantofaman returned to form with a very good effort at Galway and looks a threat. EL SORO has looked as though he needed a stiffer test when staying on over 2m on his two latest starts. He should be suited by today's trip and ground and is given the nod though Massini's Brook showed plenty of promise when last seen at Kilbeggan in May and has to be on the short-list.
