Verdict

Ballydoyle took this in 2009 with Purple Heart, who carried a big weight to victory, and CANARY WHARF can repeat the process. The Derby entry ran an excellent race behind the well-regarded Mahaazen on heavy going at Tipperary earlier this month and is almost guaranteed to make further progress. Danequest had just over a length to spare over Afraz at Gowran last month and there's little in it at the revised weights but Fibril produced a disappointing effort in soft ground at Fairyhouse after a couple of promising runs. Antiquus looked certain to be suited by further when staying on over 7f at Down Royal and could provide a threat along with La Oliva, who makes her nursery debut from a fair mark.
