Joseph O'Brien is on board the selections in the two opening races and can complete a hat-tick via JUNIPER TREE. His mount, a son of Galileo out of the high-class Alexander Goldrun, caught the eye in no uncertain terms behind long odds-on stablemate Australia on fast ground at the Curragh and these conditions will be more in his favour. Hurricane Volta, a full-brother to a 6f two-year-old winner, looks best of the David Wachman pair but with both the Bolger and Weld camps in sparkling form neither Peony Fairy, a half-sister to two winners in the USA, nor Sparkle Factor, the first foal of a useful miler, can be totally discounted on their debuts.
