Verdict

One True Love will appreciate stepping up to a mile after finding 6f much too short when making her debut behind stablemate George Vancouver on this track but ABBEY VALE has to be the form pick. Ger Lyons' colt was making his debut on the surface when finishing very strongly behind Fighter Squadron over the C&D a week ago and this should prove within his capabilities. Polished Rock has run three times at Leopardstown, improving with each outing, and he looks a major threat if handling the surface. The once-raced Gmac can prove best of the remainder.
