Verdict

BANNA BOIRCHE is comfortably the pick on official ratings and should get back to winning ways despite becoming a little bit disappointing. He's never won on Turf in 22 starts but has scored eight times on this track though not over a trip this far. He lost all chance at the start in a Group 3 here last time and will need to jump out better here. He had Muck 'N' Brass around 4l behind on his previous start and should take care of Eddie Lynam's charge again but Paene Magnus is improving at a rate of knots and though winning a mile handicap off a mark of 79 doesn't equate to this level Jim Bolger wouldn't be stepping him up without good reason. Bolger also runs the lightly raced filly Loreto, who will be having her first start on the surface. Romantic Stroll hasn't had much experience but showed she was up to Listed company with a good run behind Lily's Angel here last week while Dermot Weld won this a year ago and Starstruck won a minor handicap easily here last month.
