David O'Meara's stable can land a quick double via CAGOULE, who was surprisingly beaten on his UK debut at Hamilton but looks the pick on his form on soft ground in France last year. Royal Connoisseur was just beaten on good to soft going over course and distance in April but has had plenty of chances, though is probably the one for forecast-backers with the remaining trio having shown little so far.
