Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has failed to win this for the last three years. That's something of a drought for him as he'd won seven of the eight renewals prior to that. COACH HOUSE can see him back in the winners' enclosure today, however, as he found only the American No Nay Never too good in the Norfolk at Ascot last week giving the impression this extra furlong would suit in the process. Stablemate Stubbs ran below par when favourite in the Coventry, also at Ascot, and is fancied to get the better of Leopardstown winner Sudirman if back to his best though the latter has the beating of both Sniper and Muscle Beach. Big Time is preferred to Focus On Venice of the two winning debutants.
