Henson and Allen Warrior make most appeal of the newcomers on paper whilst Too Many Diamonds is taken seriously after showing marked improvement when fourth behind subsequent Coventry Stakes winner, War Command, at Leopardstown. This will show us if he was flattered by that performance. Odisseia looks more of a nursery type whilst Ubiquitous Mantle is clearly going the right way after making the long odds-on Zakhm pull out all the stops last time. KEYWORD was well behind Too Many Diamonds on debut but improved considerably when pushing The Organ Grinder hard at Limerick next time up. He looks likely to be suited by a mile and will hopefully be able to handle quicker conditions equally effectively.
