Verdict

FAMOUS NAME won this in 2008 and 2010 and looks to have this in the bag, especially as one of his main rivals looks to be his stablemate Caponata. The selection is a wonderful advertisement for Dermot Weld's skills having won an incredible 20 of his 37 starts, including his first Group 2 when easily beating Born To Sea at the Curragh in August. He's impossible to oppose despite the strength of the opposition in which Chrysanthemum and Barack, who fought out the finish of a Listed event at Cork last week, should provide a test though the former was behind Caponata at the Curragh last month. Alla Speranza ran poorly at Gowran last time but that wasn't her true running and she's better judged on her earlier Group 3 success over this C&D.
