Stanhope, a winner on good to soft in the UK, has been in good form at Dundalk and has a favoured inside berth. St Brelades Bay is a consistent performer who acts on any ground but has gone up to his highest-ever mark after a close third in a Group 3 here in September. Hee Haw has been running well enough in minor handicaps at Dundalk, winning one last month, though stall 16 will be difficult to overcome. JEWEL MAKER made a successful return to action in testing ground at Cork last May having made a promising debut here the previous October. He obviously goes well fresh so the lack of a recent run may not be too much of a problem. Rattling Jewel has changed stables but won in heavy ground at Listowel last summer.
