Verdict

Most of Ireland's best young riders are involved here and Cry For The Moon will lack nothing in the saddle under Shane Foley though he keeps rising in the weights without winning. Joseph O'Brien's booking for Scots Gaelic is interesting as his mount will love the fast ground though he's out of form at present. Honest Strike hasn't been seen since scoring at Southwell in October for Henry Cecil but connections went to 32,000gns for him and he should begin to repay that faith soon. Spring Hawk's only success came on fast ground over this trip at Down Royal in June but he's 12lb higher so the vote goes to the veteran HEARTHSTEAD DREAM, who has been in good form over timber and is 8lb lower than when last scoring on the Flat.
