JUICESTORM VERDICT: The Richard Hannon yard have a good record in this race – including a win 12 months ago – so their Chindit is sure to be popular – he’s 2-from-2 to date and is also a proven CD winner here. Devious Company should be going close too with the step back up to 7f a big plus after getting a bit outpaced over 6f the last twice. The Joseph O’Brien runner – State Of Rest – has some solid form in Ireland too and looks a player, while Saint Lawrence and Mujbar were nice winners last time out and with a bit of improvement ca have a say. But the call is the Owen Burrows runner – ALBASHEER – who was hugely impressive when winning on debut over this course and distance by 6 ½ lengths. Yes, this is a step up in grade, but he’s got some fancy G1 entries ahead so is clearly held in some regard and it’s interesting jockey Jim Crowley prefers him to the other Maktoum runner in the field – Mujbar. The Burrows yard are also 2 from 6 with their 2 year-olds at the track (33%).
