Verdict

MAAREK won this a year ago, the first of three victories which included the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp. He was well behind An Saigdhiur at Cork on his return but the ground that day was very testing and he can take his revenge now and land this for the second time. Scream Blue Murder was 5l back in second at Cork and looks held by the winner but Timeless Call is a decent sort at this level and her trainer doesn't waste entries. Guerre is the unexposed entry and the only three-year-old. He couldn't quite handle the step into this grade at the Curragh on his second start but entries in several Group 1s suggest better is expected in his second campaign.
