Verdict

Leitir Mor's only previous wins have come in the grade and he hinted at a revival in a Listed contest over 1m here last week. Jim Bolger's colt would have an outstanding chance in this if back to his best, despite the big penalty but Brendan Bracken has his measure on recent form and will be fancied to open his seasonal account. Eastern Rules is a specialist over this trip but hasn't run since March so this looks a good opportunity for BIG BREAK. She was fourth in last year's Irish 1000 Guineas and there was nothing wrong with her comeback fourth at this level at the Curragh. Slipper Orchid may be stepping out of her comfort zone in this grade.
