PRINCE CHARMIN' (NAP) could be called the winner some way from home in a Tramore maiden last month. He steps up a further half-mile for this but it should be within his range and he is John Oxx's only runner on the card today. Alnahar has been threatening a return to winning ways and looks a danger. Sir Raston won over track and trip in March but was brought down in a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan in his only subsequent outing while Highland Fling prefers an easy surface on Turf so may not take to this track. Asian Wing is preferred to Little Stampy and Darkyila of the remainder.
