Verdict

Greek Canyon was in brilliant form last summer winning four of his last five races. However, they were all over further and he may have to wait for another day to get back on the winning trail. The veteran Six Of Hearts is very well handicapped but also needs further nowadays but Great Minds has to be a threat to all. Tommy Stack's charge was beaten a nose over track and trip in October and returned to action in superb form beating subsequent winner Srucahan comfortably on testing ground at the Curragh. This will be his first start on quicker going but there's no reason to believe he won't act. It's rare to find a three-year-old from Ballydoyle running in a handicap so early in the campaign but MASAI, who is still in the Irish 2000 Guineas but also in the July Cup, must be regarded as a speed merchant. He was in need of his opening run at Naas and that should have brought him to concert pitch for this. Norville was just behind him at Naas and is probably better suited by another furlong but More Questions, who also ran in that event, scored over this track and trip in October and can go well at a fair price.
