Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last four renewals and though EXACT is hardly a stable star this could be his trip as he stayed on over a mile on heavy ground at Listowel before fading over 1m4f at Gowran last time where he was in the lead at this distance. Brinestine has run well enough without really looking like getting there and Pacelli Road has a long absence to overcome. John Oxx' newcomer Nimdani, a son of Dalakhani, won't need to be a world-beater to make a winning start and the market should tell us more.
