Verdict

Aidan O'Brien must be tearing his hair out over SECRETARY OF STATE but the top weight didn't do a lot wrong when runner-up for the third time behind Crimson Sunrise at Killarney latest. He should again beat third Money Spider and first-time blinkers could just inspire him enough to open his account today. French Quebec's Killarney win has been franked and he is weighted to account for third Lady Geronimo again, while Hurricane Ridge beat a couple of Ballydoyle juveniles on his debut at the same track and should improve further. The consistent Jimtown is preferred to Lonrach of the others.
