GRANDDUKEOFTUSCANY never got involved at any stage in the race where his odds-on stablemate Gypsy King dead-heated at the Curragh earlier this month. The son of Galileo stayed on once the race was all over and he should have come on enough to reverse the form with Wrap Star, who finished third but had the benefit of a previous run. Unrequited ran well enough after a long break at Leopardstown last month and this quicker ground should be in his favour and Dabasan improved on his opening effort when tackling faster going here last time.
