Verdict

This has been run eight times and Aidan O'Brien has won them all - with five different jockeys. The stable appear intent on keeping up the sequence with three entries and Joseph, who will have had the pick of the trio, can become the sixth winning rider on board the Montjeu colt INDIAN CHIEF. Great Explorer is by Galileo out of a 6f winner while Piet Mondrian has eight winning siblings in his pedigree including French 2000 Guineas winner Aussie Rules. Jim Bolger has had a wonderful season with his juveniles and Loch Garman has to be of interest as does Dermot Weld's Manhattan Swing, who is from a good family of milers. Cottrell's dam has produced winners with her first two foals and Kevin Prendergast's colt is another to keep an eye on.
