Verdict

Aznavour made a winning debut over a mile at Galway last April and was highly tried subsequently. He can do better but SKYWAY looks the pick of the weights. The filly never ran as a juvenile but won two from six in her first campaign and led for most of the way over 1m1f when last seen on this track in September. Duc De Savoie hasn't had much racing for his age but has shown plenty of ability and his only success came over this trip at Listowel. He looks well enough treated and though Cheers Buddy is out of the handicap his young rider's claim will be a big help and this recent dual winner is in such good heart that a hat-trick is by no means out of the question. Prince Jock won three times in mid-summer last year and a recent run on Polytrack will have put him straight enough to make his presence felt.
