The three-year-old Docs Legacy was placed twice on Turf last month and has already won on the Polytrack. However, he looks high enough in the ratings at present and there are a number of course specialists among today's opposition. STAR LINKS staged a couple of successful raids here at the end of the summer with Robert Winston in the saddle on both occasions. The partnership is reunited as the six-year-old crosses the Irish Sea again and can come out on top. Snow Trooper has the ability to win again off his current mark and shouldn't be underestimated but Standpoint needs to rediscover his best form and Patriotic disappointed here last week. Silverware won over a shorter trip here earlier in the month but has more on his plate today and Focail Maith is probably still a few pounds too high.
