Verdict

Aidan O'Brien had six of the original entries and Adjusted and Tigris River represent the yard. Both are sons of Montjeu and looked in need of the experience and a longer trip on their debuts so should do much better this season. Kevin Prendergast has won this three times in recent years so the newcomer Maskoon should be noted in the betting as he'll be suited by the trip. John Oxx had a terrible 2013 so will want to be up and running this time and there are big expectations about MARAKOUSH, who is in the 2000 Guineas and both Derbys. He's related to several high-class performers and out of a top-class mare and showed plenty on his debut at the Curragh in October. Austere Approach is related to several winners and is worth a look on his debut while Fascinating Rock didn't do much wrong in very testing ground here in October.
