This is a race that the Hannon yard has won four times in the last ten years and Spell is their sole entry this year. It is incredibly difficult to get away from THE IRISH ROVER here though, he was only just over a length behind stablemate Sergei Prokofiev (who has since bolted up in a two-year-old race at Navan) in a Maiden at Dundalk earlier this year. Ryan Moore is now aboard this colt by No Nay Never, who won the Norfolk Stakes over today’s course and distance in 2013, and he may not even have to build on the form of that Dundalk race to triumph here.
