FormscanBy Alan Magee - ALEXANDROUPOLIS handled soft ground when making a successful debut at Galway last September and is held in high regard by connections. He’s reportedly been working well this spring and riding arrangements suggest he’s the pick of Aidan O’Brien’s three runners. Denmark won on debut over a mile at Naas and was just denied on his only subsequent start at Longchamp, while Mohawk Chief also handles soft ground having won a maiden here last backend. Piz Badile broke the Ballydoyle domination of this race last year and Donnacha O’Brien is represented this time by Alder who won a Killarney maiden and kept on well into third behind Auguste Rodin in a Group 2 here on Irish Champions Weekend.
