well if the ground is on the decent side Ill probably back Asian Maze each way because I like the odds and she didnt get a hard race last day.  She was also travelling nicely last year and was a bit unlucky.  It might be that there are a good few with chances in this but I dont fancy straw bear at all. He failed to get up the hill last year in what didnt look a vintage supreme novices.  He got put in his place well by Iktitaf at Punchestown.  Im not completely convinced Afsoun ran his race last day.  Whereever he is, connections of Sublimity seem to think they will be in front of him.

Its possible BI ran just a bit flat last day if thats a sensible excuse but I really dont know.

Im warming to Detroit City and i think the rain will do him no harm at all.  Still shouldnt be favourite IMO.
