Racing off his proper mark and back up in trip, DEAUVILLE FLYER could prove up to the task of carrying top weight. Tim Easterby's course-and-distance winner has been in the first three on all four visits to the track, the yard had a welcome winner on Wednesday and one of Deaville Flyer's early-season conquests The Fonz also scored that day, so everything is in place for a big run. Plymouth Rock will pose a huge threat if he sees out the trip but he failed to do that at Haydock on his first try and the feeling is this strong-traveller will prove better over slightly shorter. Becausewecan ran a taking race at Goodwood having gone off too fast and shouldn't be discounted along with Dazinski, who was only just beaten over course and distance last time and is just a pound higher now. Lady Luachmhar looks the pick of the Fahey pair and shapes as though she'll stay, but one try here resulted in comprehensive defeat and she would prefer rain to fall, while Perfect Shot hasn't shown enough to suggest he'll give John Dunlop back-to-back wins in this race.
