Verdict

Jim Bolger is trying to strike while the iron is hot with FIONNUAR. She picked up a penalty when completing a quick-fire hat-trick at Naas on Wednesday but the trainer again puts him 10lb claimer Killian Hennessy and she'll be hard to beat. Sacred Dragon looks the danger as she was well backed on her handicap debut here last month. She could only finish sixth but was only four lengths behind winner Roca Tumu, who won last week's Britannia Stakes at Ascot. Truly Genius and Auden both arrive off the back of recent wins while Seamie Heffernan could get a tune out of Parkers Mill but Stronger Than Me disappointed last time and it's usually worth opposing The Fox Tully.
