PreviewsMr Lupton made a winning visit to the Curragh last weekend and is of interest once again, with Billy Garrity's claim nullifying his 5lb penalty. However, STONE OF DESTINY landed a competitive renewal of the Portland with a bit to spare and can strike once again to give Andrew Balding his third Ayr Gold Cup. The consistent Arecibo was fourth in that Doncaster contest, and is part of a strong David O'Meara challenge that also includes recent winners Young Fire and Cold Stare, as well as Gulliver. Kevin Ryan has a great record in this and saddles Royal Ascot winner Hey Jonesy, Major Jumbo and Bielsa, while Kynren is interesting dropping back to 6f following wind surgery.
