Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won this with Yeats and Fame And Glory in recent years and will be hoping EL SALVADOR can follow their lead and become a top stayer. He's been gradually improving as stepping up in trip and shouldn't have too much to fear from Voleuse De Coeurs, who he beat comfortably at Limerick. Steps To Freedom generally performs at a high level on the Flat and over hurdles and wasn't too far behind Fame And Glory a year ago while Missunited won a Grade 3 novice hurdle in March and any further rain will enhance her chances.
