Verdict

INDIAN CHIEF is comfortably the pick on official ratings and looks another for the Ballydoyle team. Entries in two Group 3's suggest he's better than this and and his close third in the Dante behind Libertarian and Trading Leather is by far the best form on offer. St Jean has never recaptured the form that saw him score at Tramore by 16l and that now looks a fluke but Opera Gloves has some smart form to her credit including when narrowly beaten by Venus De Milo in a Listed race at Naas.
