I Will Excel has kept good company and his form entitles him to the greatest respect though he's up against some interesting newcomers as is Zylan, who wasn't too far behind him on his introduction at the Curragh. Blackbriar has also raced in decent company and tackles this trip for the first time after showing very good speed over the minimum. Ger Lyons has had a fine season with his juveniles and Cool Beans is one to keep an eye on as he's a half-brother to the useful He's No Saint. Escapism is out of a mare who won over this trip as a two-year-old while Petit Adagio is related to the 7f winner Sparkle Factor though will be suited by further in time. GENERAL MARSHALL cost over a million dollars as a two-year-old and is by War Front out of a USA winner. He's entered in numerous group races and can make a successful debut.
