Leroy Parker is still out of the handicap despite a penalty for Tuesday's success at the Curragh though Conor Hoban's claim is a bonus. This has been a good race for three-year-olds and there are several with chances here including MONTEBELL. Ken Condon's filly was having her first start since May and making her handicap debut when scoring with something in hand at the Curragh last month and with further progress likely she's given the vote. Aidan O'Brien runs both Offer, a lightly-raced type who disappointed last time after looking a nice prospect, and Harrison's Cave, who has been racing over further without success. Diplomat has plenty of scope and will love the heavy ground while the jumpers Beau Michael and One Cool Shabra have the ability to get involved in a tight handicap.
