Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last four so HEIRLOOM is likely to have been targeted at the race. A 480,000gns yearling, he ran very well behind the stable's Irish Oaks runner-up Venus De Milo at Fairyhouse before easily landing a Dundalk maiden and looks capable of a much higher rating than he's running with here. Giant's Quest has been going very well over hurdles and is another likely to improve his rating on the Flat while Leah Claire has won eight of her 50 races and can never be discounted at this sort of level. Zafarqand is probably the main threat despite still being a maiden as he was making his handicap debut when a close second to Kingdom at Fairyhouse.
