Cebuano has been going well in bumpers so it's a surprise to see him racing over a mile. Circus Act was beaten out of sight in three races over timber last month so this could easily provide Eddie Lynam with a 1-2. Diamond Daze made his racecourse debut at the Curragh in June when he ran well behind Sharestan. He ended the campaign with a close second to Gaiety Theatre over this C&D in December and should find a race soon but his stablemate OPA LOCA is surely the one to be on. He also ran in Sharestan's race at the Curragh and did brilliantly to be beaten less than two lengths into second. He has returned with two fine efforts here and will take all the beating.
