2nd Sir Chauvelin 5/1 - 60
3rd Dubawi Fifty 7/2 - 50
Paddyplex steps up in distance and class here after a win here in November. We know he handles the track and the step up in distance should be fine. The jockey booking catches the eye, as Oisin Murphy has never ridden for Dalgleish yet he is red hot form the last couple of weeks.
Sir Chauvelin won over C&D in November but he also won at Musselburgh on Monday (beating Silver Concorde)so im guessing his participation is in doubt.
Dubawi Fifty has good breeding for the AW. He has stats of 5, 2, 2, 1, 4 here, and his win came over 2m, so this is a drop back, he was a very good 4th in the Cesarewitch in October though.
My Selection: Paddyplex 5/1
