Verdict

The last seven of these have been shared between Dermot Weld and Aidan O'Brien with the former leading 5-2. FRIENDSHIP represents Ballydoyle this time and can start redressing the balance as his close second to Exogenis is the best form on view as the winner boosted the form in a Group 3 at Leopardstown on Thursday. Mustajeeb represents Weld and he produced a very promising debut run behind Sir John Hawkins at the Curragh in May and has obviously been saved for this. It would be no surprise to see Jim Bolger break the domination as his horses are absolutely flying and the newcomer Royal Focus will have been primed for this high profile meeting as he's by the trainer's stallion Intense Focus. Dai Bando hasn't been disgraced in a couple of tough maidens at the Curragh and looks best of the remainder.
