Verdict

GIOVANNI BOLDINI is likely to be a warm order after his fine effort behind Mustajeeb in the Jersey Stakes and a similar effort would see him very difficult to beat. Captain Joy wasn't beaten far in this a year ago and should be ready for another big run after returning from Dubai with a solid effort in a Listed contest at Leopardstown. Manalapan was also in action in Dubai during the winter where he performed with credit, though he has a couple of pounds to find with Paene Magnus on their run at Dundalk in October. The latter could prove a big threat as he likes this track and fast ground and wasn't disgraced behind Magician here last month.
