Verdict

Bint Nayef won a maiden at Galway last time and will find this tougher. POLISHED ROCK is preferred, despite his winning run coming to end in better company at Leopardstown last month, as he'd beaten Neophilia at the Curragh before that. Always Annie is another with claims dropping down in class while recent hurdles winner Ancient Sands has a shout back on the Flat. Bensoon has been competing over further but is not easily dismissed off his current mark and Prospectorous won over 1m3f here back in May.
