Verdict

Aidan O'Brien had five entries at the early stage and relies on DARWIN, whose two runs to date have been on Dirt surfaces at Aqueduct and Belmont. He cost 1.3m dollars as a two-year-old and with numerous big race entries there'll be some long faces at Ballydoyle if he's not capable of beating his two useful though limited rivals, who both wear blinkers for the first time. Fighter Squadron attempted to make all over 1m3f in a Listed event at Leopardstown but the plan backfired and he should do better over today's distance. Resolute Response finished just in front of him and appeared well suited to that trip so may find this on the short side.
