Former pointer Dunraven Prince may need further but should still prove the pick of those with experience, though he's likely to find a couple of today's newcomers have too much speed for him. Cut The Cards has an interesting pedigree, being by stayer Vinnie Roe out of a winning miler. He's one for the short-list but the four-year-old BEAT THE REF gets 12lb, which may swing things his way. His dam won over 1m4f so Evan Williams' charge so should have no problem staying this trip and is likely to know his job at the first time of asking. Master Cynk cost 13,000 euros as a yearling and may be the pick of the remainder.
