David Wachman has a superb record in this and Hen Night was successful for the yard a year ago. However, the younger generation appear to hold the key again with both CLAIOMH SOLAIS and Wild Wind having competed at a higher level virtually throughout the campaign. The former finished in front of her rival when a good third to Manieree in a Group 3 at the Curragh last time and should have few problems confirming the form and taking this. So Stylish also represents Aidan O'Brien but this long-time absentee will probably need the run and it's Alanza who may prove the danger from the three-year-olds. John Oxx has a fine record in the event and his Dubai Destination filly has looked certain to be suited by further in her three runs over 6f to date.
