John Dunlop won this a year ago with Tactic and TIMES UP can repeat the process. A late-maturer, he's taking the same route as his stablemate who had also won the same Listed contest at York previously and this looks well within his capabilities. Red Cadeaux won a Listed event at Hamilton last month over 1m4f and, as the longer trip is more his scene, he looks the main threat as the home contingent don't look anything special though the only three-year-old, Admiral Of The Red, is very much bred for this sort of trip and could turn out to be a Cup horse next season. Nebula Storm will be pleased not to be watching Fame And Glory passing him as he has done in his last two starts while Address Unknown, who tackles this trip for the first time, had just three runners to beat at Dundalk last time.
