Hamish McGonagall and Triple Aspect both have a 4lb pull with ASTROPHYSICAL JET on their running at The Curragh in the Flying Five last month but Ed McMahon's filly was good value for her two length success that day and, on similar ground conditions here, she can follow up that success. Jeremy Noseda's Group Therapy and Robert Cowell's Prohibit are closely matched on their running at Doncaster recently and have to be considered, while Mick Channon's Mister Hughie also has form that ties in with Prohibit and is another to consider for place claims at least. The three-year-old Beyond Desire and the well treated but out of form Total Gallery are others to consider but it is Astrophysical Jet that gets the vote.
