Verdict

FAMOUS NAME won this in 2008 and again last year when he defied a similar penalty to score in a canter. He has yet to do it at the very highest level but places in three Group 1's this campaign suggest he can take this again. The three-year-old filly Zaminast was having only her third start when runner-up to Flowers Of Spring at Gowran when subsequent winner Handassa was behind. Dermot Weld's filly has a pattern race in her and it wouldn't be a great shock if it was today. Atlantic Swing was four lengths behind Amazing Beauty at Dundalk in April but reappeared earlier this month to score very easily at the Curragh. She can reverse form with Aidan O'Brien's disappointing filly, while the progressive Defining Year will enjoy any more rain and has twice been placed at this level.
