Not surprisingly many of these would be better with a few hurdles to jump including Whatuthink, who ended a long losing run with a victory over timber at Down Royal last month. Bahrain Storm is better known as a chaser these days and is no doubt warming up for the Galway Plate in which he fell when fancied last year and though Cloudgazer has been confined to the Flat he hasn't run since December. Donatis Comet won three bumpers last summer and scored over 1m2f at Clonmel in May so he should have enough pace but this can go to the youngest in the field CHINA ONE. He makes his handicap debut after a very reasonable effort behind subsequent Group 3 winner Hartani at Tipperary and looks well enough treated to gain his second success in just four outings.
