Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this with a three-year-old last year and will be expecting I Have A Dream to complete the double after his comfortable victory over 1m4f on heavy ground at Bellewstown. The son of Galileo won't be inconvenienced by stepping-up in trip and it's difficult to see him out of the frame but SHELFORD was equally impressive when storming home here a couple of weeks ago and in receipt of 4lb can score again. Katevan is interesting as her only run to date was over a mile at Dundalk in September. Her pedigree suggests she won't stay the trip but Jim Bolger wouldn't have her entered here unless he knew better. Universal Truth will be warming up for Galway so winning bumper Donatis Comet could prove best of the older brigade.
