Tonabrocky ran fast for a long way over a mile here on his debut and with that under his belt looks certain to be involved in the finish. Mourani struggled to go the pace in very testing ground over a mile at Galway so it's a surprise to see him dropping back in trip though he'll have come on for the run. COTTRELL was always in the firing line before fading close home behind Loch Garman at Navan and, as the winner came out and won a Group 1 in France on Wednesday, that form should be good enough for this. Foundry represents Ballydoyle and is yet another Galileo colt out of a top-class miler in the USA so he could be anything.
