Verdict

JUSTIFICATION should prove best of the Ballydoyle pair and looks the one to be on here. A winner over 1m6f at Lepardstown, he was sent to the UK for the Chester Cup but found plenty of trouble in-running and did well to finish so close. This should be run at a furious pace and his stamina can see him home. Leah Claire was in good form over hurdles before reverting to Turf with a victory over this trip at Lepardstown. She's still well treated and looks a threat along with Clara Bel La, who could do with more rain after her easy victory in the Tipperary mud. Fairview Star and Aladdins Cave fought a battle at Leopardstown last month and the latter can reverse the form with Ronan Whelan's claim a bonus.
