On to the hurdles track now for what should prove a cracking contest though Flatfoot Boogie could be an absentee as he was engaged to run at Cork last night. Draycott Place had been mixing it with the best before landing a maiden and a novice hurdle but will need to go up another gear as will Little King Robin, who will enjoy the fast conditions. Lucky William proved himself a high-class chasing prospect when landing the Grade 1 Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown but that was over two years ago on heavy ground. Darwins Fox had Sailors Warn 4l behind at Killarney in May and there doesn't appear any reason for a turnaround but it's SIMENON who gets the nod as though it's over two years since he completed a double at Royal Ascot Willie Mullins' globe-trotter has competed at a very high level and will no doubt be aimed at the Melbourne Cup again where he finished a superb fourth last year.
