Elixir Dainay, travels like a horse that will enjoy the fast pace here. He didn’t stay last time over 2:6 as he pulled too hard and that is why he is a huge price is. He was beaten by Envoi Allen by 3 lengths and again pulled to hard at times. The pace of this race should suit him and he should get a lead here. If Envoi Allen really is the second coming, this one won’t be too far away here. It’s also possible that Abracadabras should be fav on form and is also possible value.

We already have Discorama here at a huge price, but I like Activial here at a big price. He ran well here last year of a higher mark, really caught the eye travelling well behind Native River on his only run this year and is 6 pounds lower than last year. Previous race form is key in this and 28/1 is value.

Jarvery’s Plate has been on my mind for this for a while. He has some good form and is a bit inconsistent. Beating Reserve Tank first run this year is top class. He also ran better than the result in the Grade 1 at Kempton (he got badly hampered by a faller turning for home). We’re hoping for a going day here but he’s a big price.

I’ve liked Rouge Vif for this since seeing him trounce Nube Negra. I’m not sure about the Irish form and the fact that they are all top of the market make some of the English horses value.

I’m torn between Sharjah for the win and Petit Mouchoir ew, but although it seems Sharjah needs good ground I’m not 100% about that. I just think he has on and off days. He won the Galway Hurdle easily on soft ground. He has easily the best form in this race and Patrick Mullins was happy with him travelling in similar ground last year here before a fall. 14/1 is the value here.
