The last eight of these have been shared by Aidan O'Brien and Dermot Weld and it's 5-3 to the latter. Ballydoyle have three entries this time with Together Forever, a 680,000 euros yearling and a half-sister to Lord Shanakill, looking the stable pick on jockey bookings though Ask Me Nicely is closely related to the high-class Beethoven. Weld's Chinese Light has more of a middle-distance pedigree though she'll certainly be primed for action as will Jim Bolger's Fields Of May, who has a Group 2 entry next month. Kevin Prendergast has won this a couple of times so a chance is taken with TAMADHOR, who is by first-season sire Arcane who has made such a good start to his stallion career, and out of a winning miler. Legatissimo looks best of those who have had a run.
