Formscan - GARDE DES CHAMPS may be a maiden after 10 starts under Rules, but he's been running well in handicaps since returning from wind surgery and the drop into maiden company could help him get off the mark. Quaresome landed a bumper at Roscommon in September and he must enter calculations on his debut for the Donald McCain yard. Artiste D'ainay, who finished third behind exciting Ballymore winner Impaire Et Passe (albeit beaten 23 lengths) at Naas in December, demands the utmost respect too.
