Verdict

Eye Of The Storm should go well having picked up a Group 3 at Leopardstown just nine days ago. Ryan Moore is on board and he steered Dandino to success in this contest last year. But the latter doesn't arrive in the best of form and the re-opposing SUNTRACER was closing him down all the way to the line in last year's renewal. Chris Block's charge looks a decent price to take his revenge in the UK betting. Moment In Time may come up short but The Pizza Man has a shout if lasting home.
