Verdict

The veteran Toufan Express has been running well though an 8lb rise for his C&D success earlier this month may have stopped him in his tracks and he was a long way behind Ocean Drift when the latter finished runner-up to Core Element at Gowran on Sunday. Andy Oliver's charge was having only his third start since 2010 and looks a threat to all though OH HAPPY DAYS looks the one to be on. David Wachman's filly had a long break after running three times in May and didn't return until last month when she ran very well behind Zariyna at Leopardstown. She should be ready for this and has also run well on the surface. Lord Kenmare can generally be relied on to go well on the track and is on the same mark as when successful in January but He's Got Rhythm seems better over 7f.
