YALE will never repay a fraction of the $1m paid for him and was beaten when odds-on at Navan. He'll be short enough here but perhaps the surface will bring out the best in him and he should go one better. the My Excelsa had her first start for Johnny Levins here a couple of weeks ago when, returning from a long break, she ran well behind Benedict Roezi. She'll improve for the run and her trainer will find a race for her. Wild Bob Cat has gone backwards this year with just one decent effort at Tipperary to her credit but Son And Sannie should find a race before long, possibly in a handicap.
