Verdict

INTENSIFIED is unlucky not have won yet. He followed up a debut second at this track with another fine effort behind subsequent Coventry Stakes winner War Command at Leopardstown and is hard to oppose. The latter is trained by Aidan O'Brien so he presumably thinks Dove Mountain has a chance if back to his best after a below-par effort at Tipperary. The remainder are all newcomers and Trikala stands out among them as she's a half-sister to Mill Reef winner Moohaajim.
