Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute generally only sends horses to Ireland for Group 1's so it's a pointer that DANK is racing here. She's already won twice at Group 3 level and ran her best race to date when a very close third to Duntle and Ladys First at this level at Royal Ascot and today's trip and going are ideal. Willie McCreery has done brilliantly with the ex-French Fiesolana who has also won two Group 3's after carrying a big weight to victory in a handicap here in May. Caponata has been a bit disappointing and was a long way behind Aloof at Gowran last September so the latter has to be considered as her trainer has won three of the last five of these.
