Aidan O'Brien has won two of the four renewals and SNOW QUEEN will be a warm order despite facing some well-connected newcomers. The sister to Carribean Sunset, who won the Desmond Stakes on this card in 2008, started favourite on her debut over the C&D but looked badly in need of the experience and did better on a return visit in a Group 3. Both runs were on soft ground and tonight's quicker ground and a low draw can enable her to get off the mark and justify some fancy entries. Jim Bolger won this last year and the superbly-bred Scintillula is definitely one to keep on the right side. She's a full-sister to three winners and two classic-placed performers and will know her job though a high draw won't help. Bracing Breeze should do well over middle-distances next season, Burren Trail is a full-sister to a Group 3 winner in the USA and What Style looks a nice prospect though probably over further.
