Tommy Stack has won this twice in recent years so the presence of the unraced Vegas Rocks is noted. PINKISTHECOLOUR has found the minimum trip too short on both starts to date and was staying on behind Boris Grigoriev at Tipperary last time. She looks the one to beat though Gin Rummy and Dayrina will have come on for their debuts with the latter in particular being better suited by today's ground than the testing conditions she encountered at the Curragh.
