Tiger At Heart made his debut in a Group 3 at Leopardstown a fortnight ago and though finishing last of four and never threatening he'll be more at home in this company. John Oxx won this a year ago so the Halling colt Karatash is one to keep on the right side as is Dermot Weld's Spirit Of Concorde, an Authorized colt out of a winning miler. Aidan O'Brien runs Exact, a half-brother to several winners and out of a winning miler, and FATHER OF SCIENCE, a son of Galileo who is related to High Chaparral and Black Bear Island. He's in all the top races and will need to win this to justify his entries.
