Verdict

Jim Bolger, Aidan O'Brien and Tommy Stack have dominated this in recent years, the former winning it three times including the last two. He's represented this time by Saburo, a half-brother to the moderate stayer Blue Dune. Joseph O'Brien has chosen COUGAR MOUNTAIN over Stubbs which suggests he's the more forward of the pair and gets the vote though the latter, a son of Danehill Dancer out of Irish Oaks winner Moonstone, is probably the better long term prospect. Tommy Stack's Captain Moonlite is by the brilliantly-fast first-season sire Bushranger and will undoubtedly know his job. while Dermot Weld's Highland Falcon is a half-brother to the useful handicapper Emilio Largo.
