Verdict

Surprisingly, Aidan O'Brien hasn't won this since 2005 but from an entry of seven relies on TWILIGHT ZONE, who can put matters right. The son of Danehill Dancer is out of a mare from the family of Yesterday and Quarter Moon and should be forgiven his opening run as he stumbled at the start and found the 7f trip inadequate. Lucky Kitten makes a quick reappearance after staying on behind Kingdom at the Curragh on Tuesday while John Oxx, who has won this twice in recent years, will be expecting more from Alazeya now she's tackling a more suitable trip. Truly Madly doesn't appear to have progressed as expected and has never raced beyond 6f.
