Verdict

CHICLET has plenty in hand on official ratings and her short-head second to American Hope on her debut on this track last month suggests she'll be very difficult to beat. Bobby's Heart could prove a threat as he showed good pace for a long way over 7f at the Curragh in October and is bred for sprinting. Pat Smullen would normally be expected to ride Dermot Weld's charge but surprisingly is on board the speedily-bred newcomer Prince Connoisseur for rookie handler John Feane. Edamame will probably be suited by further in time and High Expectations is a half-brother to a hurdler.
