Verdict

After landing a Group 3 over 1m2f at Naas, BANIMPIRE dropped down to a mile in the Irish 1000 Guineas and ran a fine race behind Misty For Me. Her dam was a Listed winner over this trip so she's likely to do even better and gets the vote. Aidan O'Brien has a quartet of entries but as ever jockey bookings provide no clues. None look good enough on recent form, however, while Mesariya is held by Banimpire on their run at Naas though John Oxx' filly is more likely to be suited by today's longer trip. Clive Cox does well with his Irish raiders and Polly's Mark is such a consistent mare that she should run into a place at least and could even take this if the principals don't last out the trip.
