Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won this four times in the past eight years and relies on Sing Softly, who has fitness on her side after beating a big field of maidens here two weeks ago. She has entries in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and here and should prove better than the other with recent winning form, Defining Year, who scrambled home in a handicap a fortnight ago. Jim Bolger runs Leopardstown nursery winner Deire Na Sli and the maiden GLOR NA MARA but there will be some head scratching if the latter is beaten here. A dual 2000 Guineas entry, he came up against the likes of Zoffany, Pathfork and Frankel in his six starts last term, three of them at the highest level, and offers a chance to revue the form of last year's top juveniles.
