A mile on testing ground is a long slog for juveniles but Aidan O'Brien has entered three and considering he's won the last four of these he obviously knows what's required. Joseph is on board Freedom Fighter who, like King George River, is by Danehill Dancer but it's the Dansili colt RENEW, whose dam is from the stable's trio of Oaks-placed fillies All My Loving, Yesterday and Quarter Moon, who gets the nod to make a winning start. Dermot Weld's yard is going well and the stable's Military Device is related to a host of winners, while Sugar Boy looks best of those with experience as he was going on nicely over 7f at Limerick last time.
