Edelmira showed her liking for soft ground when storming to victory at Cork earlier this month. She had been well beaten earlier on much faster going so if the rains arrive she'll be difficult to beat. Aidan O'Brien runs both KINGSBARNS and Hall Of Mirrors with preference for the former. The 2012 Racing Post Trophy winner ran only twice in his second season and was beaten when odds-on at Leopardstown in April, his only start this season. The ground was like a bog that day so he can be forgiven and with entries in Group One events later connections must still believe in him. Hall Of Mirrors is useful in his own right but looks the stable second string and it's Parish Hall who may do better despite a penalty for scoring at this level here last month.
