TAMAATHHUL's best runs have come on tracks with long home straights hence he gets the nod here. Barry Hills' colt has run well in three starts this year but this lightly-raced chap can make an impact here despite a wide draw. Dream Lodge is slowly dropping to an attractive mark and the trip will suit, Balcarce Nov is one of several confirmed front-runners who should ensure a thorough gallop, whilst Colepeper is yet to prove himself as effective over this mile trip compared to seven furlongs. Rain Rush is an interesting Irish contender after an improved second run this year at Leopardstown, and along with Osteopathic Remedy and the fairly-handicapper Richard Fahey pair of Our Joe Mac and Extraterrestrial helps make this a very open contest.
