All four have shown a good level of form but course knowledge can prove an important factor around here and DECOR IRLANDAIS (NAP) really impressed when an effortless course winner over this trip 22 days ago. The former point-to-pointer will prove difficult to overcome if at the same level and is preferred to Stony Stream, cleverly placed to land his last two starts and likely to progress further. He has yet to tackle this trip though. Fortified Bay was easily swept aside last time and needs to improve and Charming Dream is interesting in receipt of his allowances but has yet to operate over further than the minimum 2m so does have questions to answer.
