Cloud Monkey appears harshly treated with joint-topweight League Of Nations rated a much better option for Ballydoyle. He looked far better the last day when upped to 1m2f to score at Navan, seemingly relishing his first experience of quick ground. He'll be tough to beat in this follow-up attempt but a chance is taken with John Oxx's maiden, SHOURANOUR. Odds-on when comfortably reeled in by Manhattan Swing at Down Royal, he'd previously looked the sort of steady improver his yard does so well with and still gives the impression there's more to come. He's a risky choice on the back of that recent defeat but is given another chance in receipt of 8lb from League Of Nations. Indian Icon has to go up 3f in trip after his Roscommon success but is respected alongside Mouteab and Abbey Vale.
