Favourites have come unstuck in each of the last seven renewals but we’re placing our faith in DOMINATION to buck that trend.
Davy Russell rode the winner in last year’s contest and the Irish jockey can deliver again aboard the Ascot Stakes winner.
Our selection was a smart runner-up over this distance on his previous appearance at Killarney and is fancied to continue his progression over fences.
Old stalwart Fisher Bridge is an outsider to look out for following an impressive score at Down Royal while Calin Annamh is more than capable of bouncing back into form.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien has the chance to follow-up Jamaica’s success yesterday with the lively SHIELD set to go over the smaller obstacles in the opener.
O’Brien’s five-year-old was an easy winner over a furlong more at Killarney last time out and should have enough to complete a handy double here.
Rich Coast is an obvious threat following his maiden victory at Tipperary and should go close in the hands of Barry Geraghty.
Queen Alphabet is another charge with form and no doubt the Peter Fahey-trained mare will give the market principals something to think about.
Jockey Wayne Lordan has already enjoyed plenty of success across the Irish Sea this season and his Topaz Mile partner could provide another highlight.
GENERAL BROOK has been used to longer trips this term but could have a fighting chance of chasing down the leaders, much like he did when taking the spoils at both Leopardstown and Cork earlier in the year.
Balty Boys is expected to make an impression following his smart recent victory at Newmarket while Dermot Weld bids for a first renewal success since 2011 with the fancied Defining Year.
