Verdict

It's about time TIGER STRIPES was winning and this looks his opportunity. Andy Oliver's colt wasn't beaten far in a Curragh Group 2 in June and made a fair comeback after a break when runner-up to Carpathia here last week. Aidan O'Brien runs Performance and Rain God and though the latter is blinkered for the first time it's the former, who looked in need of the experience when tackling heavy ground at the Curragh in June, who should come out on top and prove the main threat. Breccbennach keeps bumping into useful rivals and should be winning soon though maybe in a nursery.
