Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this a year ago with Rain Forest and Last Crusade is his representative here from four early stage entries. A winner over a mile at Dundalk in December, he'll be better suited by today's trip as he's by Galileo. who is also the sire of NOTABLE GRADUATE. Dermot Weld's colt was a long way in front of Last Crusade when both made their debuts at Leopardstown in October and has made steady made progress as he's stepped up in trip. He's still entered in the Derbies at Epsom and the Curragh and should take this. Gort Na Mona will have found 7f too short when she made her debut at Dundalk and is likely to do better in time.
