In depth

Verdict

LOUGH CUTRA, narrowly beaten on his debut at the Curragh in October, finished less than a length behind subsequent Royal Ascot winner Russian Emperor at Naas in March and looks to have been found an opportunity to get off the mark. Numen never looked like winning on the same track a fortnight ago when stable companion Paradiso led until 2f out in that mile contest. Fraterculus ran well for a long way over the track and trip earlier this month and will improve while Ciel D'afrique is by Sea The Stars out of a mare who has produced winners with her first five foals.
