Aidan O'Brien had four entered at the early stage and relies on PARLIAMENT SQUARE. A speedily-bred son of Acclamation, he made 80,000 euros as a foal and over four times that amount as a yearling, money that looked well spent when he landed a Tipperary Listed event and finished a close third in the Prix Morny at Deauville. He's still in the Guineas at the Curragh but looks more likely to make a leading sprinter. Cape Of Approval completed a hat-trick in the summer before just touched off in a Listed contest over the course and distance. He'll be much better for his reappearance and Srucahan, another who completed a hat-trick last summer, looks held on that run over track and trip. Bracing Breeze showed promise on her Leopardstown debut and made no mistake at Dundalk though both runs were over an extra furlong.
