This fixture isn't part of the Carnival and is mainly confined to the locals. However, Mike De Kock can get in on the act with BAROOT, a 200,000gns son of Dubawi who was staying on strongly over 7f here on New Year's Day and will be suited by the extra. The stable is also represented by Jununee, who missed the break completely on his debut here at the same meeting but should have benefited from the run. Carbon Dating ran in last year's Derbies at Epsom and the Curragh though was also beaten in a Ffos Las maiden. He ran quite well on his first two starts on this track but poorly on soft ground at Abu Dhabi a couple of weeks ago. With his yard and jockey in outstanding form, Skygazer may prove best of the remainder.
