TWO horses fit the trends bill in this year’s Ces.

Don’t go too low in the official ratings with 87 the lower cut-off point. So we can rule out the punted Great White Shark, True Destiny, Mukha Magic, Vis A Vis, Leoncavallo, Lever Du Soleil, Mutadaffeq, Takarengo, Gold Arch and Mr Chua.

It’s a negative to have won last time out so Summer Moon, Not So Sleepy, Australis, Mondain, Jukebox Jive, Coltrane and Author’s Dream are the next to go.

Finishing in the first four last time is a plus which can’t be said for Cleonte, Alright Sunshine, Reshoun, Island Brave, Future Investment, Dalton Highway, Coeur De Lion, Rajinsky and Blue Laureate.

Arthurian Fable has the poor record of three-year-olds to overcome, while Rock Eagle and Indianapolis have not won over at least 1m6f.

Whirling Dervish has yet to run on the Flat this season which is another no-no.

Smart Champion and Diocletian are a little high when it comes to the draw in the 30s so are overlooked.

That leaves us with just two runners still standing — JUST HUBERT and LYNWOOD GOLD.

We don’t normally have two trends tips but, in a 34-runner field, it’s worth doubling up. They are both each-way prices and can figure in a typically tough renewal.
