Aidan O'Brien won this in 2009 and can repeat the process with WAVE, who improved from her Curragh debut to run the promising Stunned Silence close over 7f here a fortnight ago. She attempted to make all on that occasion and should have the pace to do so this time. Hongkong Dancer had finished behind Wave at the Curragh and also improved with a very good effort on soft ground at Naas. He should prove a threat while Jpevie twice ran well over the minimum trip and showed good speed for a long way when tried over 6f here last month. Grey Danube could be suited by racing over the trip for the first time after showing up well over further.
