Fantasy King is the only course and distance winner but that was in 2010. Frankie Dettori has been booked for Defence Of Duress, who had been in superb form over hurdles before two poor efforts on ground softer than ideal. Beach Of Falesa tackles the trip for the first time but has always appeared likely to stay while Domination has no problems on that score having won over 2m4f over hurdles. TAKEYOURCAPOFF has found his form having won over the trip on fast ground at Wexford before a fine effort over timber at Punchestown last week. He looks well enough treated to take this though stablemate Hurricane Ridge is also in fine shape having won at Navan a month ago.
