Verdict

Three-year-olds have a poor recent record in this and Leitir Mor may not be able to redress the balance. He's run some cracking races despite winning just once in 15 starts and has seen stablemate Dawn Approach disappearing over the horizon four times but he hasn't really sparkled this season. Sruthan won a Listed race in very good style over this trip at the Curragh before finding 1m2f much too far there and he may do better of the younger brigade. Yellow Rosebud has been a bit disappointing in her two runs this term so it's REPLY who looks the safest option. He easily landed a Listed contest at Naas last time and, having been placed at Group 1 level, this company shouldn't prove a problem. Neither Lily's Angel nor Bold Thady Quill can be ruled out though they'll need to improve again.
