Age: Winners are predominantly 5/6 years old
Favourites rarely win here, even less so on Good to Soft where they have never won over the last 10 years.
Form: They must have last raced since November and placed at the least. They must have placed previously on the same going.
French or Irish horses are the preference.
D Pipe has a good record here.
The majority of winners have an SP of 10/1 or less.
